18-year-old arrested with gun in Thibodaux school zone


 Police arrested a Thibodaux teen after he was caught carrying a loaded gun inside a school zone.

Police arrested 18-year-old Clifford Harris III on charges of Illegal Carrying of Weapons, Violation of a Firearm Free Zone and No Light on a bicycle after Dark according to Thibodaux Chief of Police Scott Silverii.

Silverii said that Harris was stopped by patrolling officers around 7:24 p.m. near the corner of Rock and Iris streets when his bicycle was seen without the state required light. Officers found a loaded .380 handgun on Harris during the stop that he did not have a permit for. He was also in a Firearm Free School Zone during the stop.

Harris is no longer a student in the Lafourche school system. Police say that school board officials confirmed he dropped out in December 2014 citing employment reasons.
