Judge calls weapons find in student’s truck ‘extremely disturbing’

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) – A bond court judge on Friday called the collection of weapons found in a high school student's truck "extremely disturbing."

"Weapons don't belong on school property. We've had enough. We've had enough," said Judge Linda Lombard.

Colby Rawson, 18, faced a bond court judge on Friday, a day after patrol officers searched his truck in the West Ashley High School parking lot and found 20 grams of marijuana, five knives, a  machete and a Mossberg shotgun.

Rawson's attorney said his client meant not harm to the school and is an avid hunter who left the weapons in his truck by mistake.

Rawson's bond was set at $37,500. He is still being held at the Al Cannon Detention Center.

A spokesman for the Charleston County School District said Rawson has been recommended for expulsion.
