Student admits to bringing bullets to school

WELLESLEY

A Wellesley Middle School Student has admitted that he was the one who dropped two bullets in the lobby auditorium last week.

The student, who has not been named, said the bullets fell out of his backpack accidentally.

He told officials that he brought the bullets to school to impress his friends.

He came forward after police gave assurances that he wouldn't face prosecution.

A custodian found the bullets in the late afternoon of Dec. 19. Police searched the building that night and school was cancelled the following day when a more thorough search was undertaken.

“There will be significant consequences within the school system,” Wellesley Police spokesperson Marie Cleary said.

“But the police and school departments agreed no criminal charges because we wanted to get to the bottom of this and get answers to everyone so they could feel safe.”
