A student at Steinbach Regional Secondary School was arrested on Tuesday afternoon after the youth was discovered to have weapons in a backpack.

Hanover School Division superintendent Randy Dueck said staff were alerted to the fact that a student was reported to have weapons in a backpack at the school. He said the student was asked to come to the school office and show the backpack’s contents.

Dueck said two knives and an airsoft gun were found inside. RCMP attended the school and the youth was arrested.

He added the youth was compliant and stressed there was no evidence of the student having any intention to use the weapons at the school.

"I’m very pleased with how this was handled," said Dueck. "It went as perfectly well as a situation like that could be handled."

The youth has since been released from custody on a promise to appear and an undertaking.

In a release, Steinbach RCMP stressed there is zero tolerance for weapons in any school.
