A TEENAGER has appeared in court after being found with an imitation firearm and a ‘blade’ at school.

The 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was found with an imitation Glock handgun and a ‘blade’ at a school in Poole.

He appeared at Poole Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, March 26, having been found with the items in December of last year.

The defendant admitted to charges of being in possession of an imitation firearm in public and being in possession of an article with a blade/sharply pointed article in school.

He was ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £26, and referred to a Youth Offender Panel for a period of six months.

A order for deprivation of the defendant's rights was also made to deprive the defendant of a ‘multitool’ he had in his possession.
