A 22-year-old woman is being held at Floyd County Jail on charges of carrying a weapon into Pepperell High and loitering on school grounds, records show.
Veronica Gonzalez is charged with:
  • Carrying weapons within school safety zones and functions or on school property.
  • Loitering upon school premises or within a school safety zone.
  • Giving a false name, address or birth date to a law enforcement officer.
  • Loitering upon school premises or within a school safety zone.

Gonzalez remain in jail as of 5:45 p.m. Friday.

Hometown Headlines has learned that:

  • A young woman managed to enter the school during class change between sixth and seventh periods. She found her way to the media center and sat in front of a computer.
  • A school employee apparently realized she wasn’t a PHS student and alerted administration.
  • The woman was escorted to an admin office as police were summoned.
  • The administrator had to restrain her from leaving until law enforcement arrived.

Floyd County Schools spokesperson Lenora Doss confirms the incident, but notes “the woman did not try to threaten anyone”, but she did “try to run” before law enforcement arrived.
