BARNSTABLE (CBS) – A Cape Cod Community College student was arrested Monday for allegedly carrying a gun on campus.

At 10am, Barnstable Police received a call from a school security guard who reported seeing ammunition in the console of a Jeep during a check of a campus parking lot.

Police arrived and confirmed the discovery of the ammo. At that time, 22-year-old Jason Whitehead approached the officer and security guard and told them it was his car. Police say Whitehead told them he was not in possession of a firearm.

After a safety pat down, police found a .380 caliber handgun and three clips of hollow point ammo in Whitehead’s backpack, who had just attended class.

Whitehead, of South Yarmouth, was arrested for carrying a firearm on campus, carrying a firearm without a license and unlawful possession of ammunition.

The gun belongs to his mother and he says he was carrying it for protection.
