Javonte Gaillard, 19, Junious Prowell, 21, and Reginald Askew, 20, were arrested on May 16 after police searched the Chevy Malibu the three had driven onto school grounds and found several guns, the possession of which is illegal in school safety zones, as well as a small stash of marijuana.
Police say they discovered a Glock 23 .40 caliber under the front seat of the car, which belonged to Gaillard’s mother, a Star Garcia .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun stuck beside the driver’s seat and a Kimel 5000 .32 revolver in a backpack on the passenger’s side floor.
According to arrest warrants, Gaillard admitted owning the Glock 23 and Prowell admitted owning the Star Garcia .45.
Police say Askew’s backpack also contained less than an ounce of marijuana, bags they say are used to distribute the illegal drug and a scale they say is used to weigh marijuana.
Gaillard has been charged with carrying weapons within a school safety zone and driving on a suspended license due to a previous failure to appear. Prowell has been charged with carrying weapons within a school safety zone. Askew has been charged with intent to distribute, carrying weapons within a school safety zone and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony-controlled substance.
