Cape Cod Community College Student Arrested With Gun On Campus

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.

    That’s F’in nuts. Glad he was arrested but it was so random. It’s way too easy to get these things onto campuses. Metal detectors are needed.

    what weren’t you thinking. don’t look for sympathy here. c’mon at 22 you know the law. while you serve you mandatory 1 year, you can probably take a course (or 2) – but the law abiding citizens of the commonwealth shouldn’t have to pay for it. hollow point ammo – for what? mom, was that your ammo? let’s take a bite out of crime.
