Action is being taken after a gun and ammunition were seized from a 15-year-old Carmel High School student.
The Monterey County Sheriff’s Department confiscated the .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol at school on Wednesday, along with 33 rounds of ammunition. No one was hurt.
According to investigators, the gun belongs to the Carmel student’s guardian — a grandparent. The student has been suspended and will be expelled, according to officials. Both he and his guardian could face criminal charges.
And this wasn’t an isolated incident. Less than a month ago, a boy brought a gun to Pacific Grove Middle School. The gun belonged to his guardian — a Seaside police officer.
The Monterey Credit Union on Fountain Avenue was robbed shortly after 3:30 p.m. Monday. According to authorities, a lone robber fled the scene on foot prior to their arrival.
The robber is described as a dark skinned male in his 30s, standing 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 8 inches, with a medium build.
Pacific Grove Police Department reports that the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office filed vehicular manslaughter charges against Pacific Grove resident Aaron Robert Erwin Thursday.
According to the police, the charges are in connection with a traffic collision that claimed the life of a 63-year-old Pacific Grove resident who was walking in a crosswalk in December 2004.
