Charlton Porter showed up at a security checkpoint at Landry about 8:30 a.m., and guards at the school at 1200 L.B. Landry Ave. noticed a bulge in the youth’s front waistband, according to police. The security officers stopped Porter, patted him down and discovered a 9mm Ruger-brand handgun holding a total of 34 rounds of ammunition, court documents allege.

The security officers confiscated the weapon, detained Porter and called the New Orleans Police Department. After learning that the Ruger was reported stolen in March 2012, NOPD booked Porter with illegal possession of a firearm at school, possession of a firearm in a firearm-free zone, and first-offense illegal possession of stolen firearms, documents indicate.

Porter’s bail was set at $50,000.
