ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A 16-year-old boy was arrested on Tuesday after school officials reported finding guns and ammunition in his vehicle at a Southwest Albuquerque high school. Authorities say an anonymous tip led to the discovery, along with a trove of Snapchat videos of the teenager flashing guns and drugs.
Daniel Acuna, a sophomore at Atrisco Heritage Academy High School, is charged with unlawful carrying of a deadly weapon on school premises and unlawful carrying of a handgun by a person under age 19.
Special Master Ted Martinez denied the 2nd Judicial District Attorney’s motion on Thursday to keep Acuna behind bars until trial. The state then requested Acuna be placed on house arrest, but Martinez released him to pretrial services on a curfew and random drug testing.
