KINGSTON — A Kingston High School student was arrested Oct. 15 for allegedly bringing two knives onto school grounds.

The student, a juvenile, was booked into Kitsap County Juvenile Detention Center for possessing dangerous weapons, according to a report by the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office.

The student signed into school in the attendance office at approximately 1:50 p.m. A KHS security officer noticed the student had "an odor of marijuana," according to the report. The student's eyes were "extremely bloodshot," the report says.

Per district policy, the security officer detained and searched the student. The security officer found a spring-blade knife in the right front pocket of the student’s jeans and a camping-style folding knife in his left pocket, according to the report.

A sheriff’s deputy arrived at KHS and detained the student at approximately 2:40 p.m. During the deputy’s conversation with the student, the student said he brought the knives to school to show his friends, according to the report.

The deputy asked if his friends had ever seen a knife before.

"It was stupid. I don't know why I brought them," the student replied. The deputy also noticed an odor of marijuana and the student's bloodshot eyes.
