Virginia man arrested after student brings gun on field trip
Police say an elementary school student brought a handgun while going on a field trip and that a Virginia man has been arrested. Colonial Heights police said in a statement posted on Facebook that 30-year-old Stanley Bernard Banks Jr. was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and allowing a juvenile access to a firearm. A school employee saw the weapon in the child's pants pocket Tuesday morning while they were on a bus from Lakeview Elementary. The gun was immediately seized and the student was returned to the school. An investigation determined that a family friend left his handgun at the student's residence the night before. Banks was released on bond pending his next court appearance on Oct. 27.
