FARMINGTON, N.M. – A welding student is in some trouble after police say he was creating a weapon during class.


Farmington Police say the Career and Technology Education Center was put on lockdown after a teacher found that a 15-year-old boy was making a hatchet during class.

The teacher confronted the student who then ran off and left the building.

Farmington High School was also placed on a preventative lockdown as that was where the student’s next class was going to take place.

Police found the student suspect at his home and arrested him.  Police learned he had taken money from his mother in order to leave the area.

The teen is facing charges of carrying or making a weapon on a school campus, disrupting the educational process and felony larceny.
