Five teens are charged with possessing a gun on Overton High School’s campus after School Resource Officer Aaron Jones Friday at 12:15 p.m. saw a suspicious vehicle parked in the rear of the school in a designated bus lane.
The driver, Wilfredo Monge, 19, then picked up four students, two 16-year-olds and two 17-year-olds, and drove off campus. Midtown Precinct Officer Raymond Flaherty conducted a vehicle stop. A nine millimeter semi-automatic pistol was located inside the car. Monge was also in possession of 17.2 grams of cocaine in 36 small baggies and $3,262 cash. He is being held in lieu of $14,000 bond.
Monge, of LaVergne, Tennessee, is charged with cocaine possession for resale, weapon possession during the commission of a felony, possessing a gun on school property, and four counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The four students are each charged in Juvenile Court with possessing a gun on school property and loitering during school hours.
