School resource officers at Lee County High School on Tuesday arrested a Cameron teenager who was allegedly on campus without authorization after finding a pistol in his vehicle.
According to the sheriff’s office, the resource officer at Lee County High School was “notified of an unauthorized person on campus” and later encountered 16-year-old Dennis Zabala of Cameron “in the company of a Lee County High student.”
“After a conversation with Zabala, school officials learned he also had a vehicle on campus. After a search of his vehicle by school officials a pistol was found inside Zabala’s vehicle,” a sheriff’s department press release reads.
It’s unclear where Zabala is enrolled in school, but he has a Harnett County address. Deputies charged him with possession of a firearm on school grounds, possession of a firearm by a minor, and first degree trespassing. He is in custody at the Lee County Jail under a $35,000 bond.
This guy looks as if he may have snuck in from another country.
They should let him go. It is racist to expect someone who is not a citizen to obey our laws.
I am sure he was only trying to make a better life for his family.
You should not separate him from them.
Actually, it would be racist to say someone “looks” like they may have “snuck in from another country.” Especially since the sheriff’s office very likely would have let the public know if that were the case. Congratulations!
