    Jordan High 10th Grader Arrested Without Incident, Allegedly Carrying Gun

    (June 1, 2005) -- A 10th grader at NLB's Jordan High was arrested at school today -- without incident -- for allegedly possessing a handgun.

    LBUSD spokesman Chris Eftychiou tells that after receiving an anonymous tip, Jordan staff approached the student at about 1 p.m. while he was walking down a hallway after class had begun. Other students, already in their classrooms, were not affected.

    Campus security and an assistant principal escorted the student to an empty room in the auditorium. A search ensued...and the gun was found and confiscated without incident.

    The student will now be expelled from Jordan, Mr. Eftychiou said.

    Jordan High will also continue additional security measures that have been in effect for several weeks, Mr. Eftychiou said. These include the presence two LBPD officers at Jordan (one officer has been regularly assigned to all LBUSD High School campuses for some time). Random searches of students and classrooms will also continue through the end of the current school year (June 16), Mr. Eftychiou said.

    LBUSD increased security -- including instituting random searches -- after finding weapons at Poly and Jordan High campuses earlier this year. Arrests have been made as part of a no-nonsense response by LBUSD.

    "Security in our schools is tighter than ever," Mr. Eftychiou said. "This is not a smart time to try anything like this student did," he added.
