LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. - A 17-year-old Lehigh Acres teenager is facing a charge of possession of a weapon on school property.

The incident happened last Friday at East Lee County High School.  An assistant principal was talking to the suspect when he noticed what appeared to be a pocket knife attached to his front pants.  The student was taken to an office where an administrative search was conducted.

The arrest report shows that during the search, a box cutter that opened like a pocket knife was found on the suspect's front pants.  Inside of his backpack were two Chinese style throwing knives.

The week before a student was accused of bringing a gun to the same high school.
