    Anne Arundel County police arrested and charged two people in connection with weapons found at a high school in Millersville, Md.

    Responding to a report of a possible trespasser on the property of Old Mill High School, a school resource officer and other police officers found two folding knives and a martial arts knife in the backpack of 18-year-old Norman Hardy, of Baltimore, police said.

    A preliminary investigation revealed Hardy was accompanied by a 14-year-old former student and entered the school about arrival time, police said. Hardy went into a classroom, while the 14-year-old remained outside.

    School officials confronted Hardy in the cafeteria area of the school after he left the class and questioned his reasons for being in the school, police said. He fled through an exit, prompting the school to contact the SRO.

    Norman reentered the school and was arrested and charged with two weapons violations, trespassing on school property and trespassing on posted property. The 14-year-old was taken into custody and charged on a juvenile citation for trespassing on school property and trespassing on posted property.
