EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – Police at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville say they arrested a student who was reportedly carrying weapons on campus.
Police say the charges against 22-year-old Stephen Vories of Glen Carbon came after a sergeant in the school's ROTC program reported that Vories appeared to be making threats on his Facebook Web site page.
Officers say they charged Vories on Friday with unlawful possession of a weapon on state property and unlawful use of a weapon after they allegedly found a Taser, a knife and two "spring guns" in his possession.
The spring guns are similar to BB guns.
Vories posted $100 bond and was released.
