Police have seized an AR-15 style firearm from the home of a 16-year-old boy in connection to the ongoing investigation into the trespassing incident at Westmont Hilltop school district earlier this week, according to a search warrant obtained from the office of Magisterial District Judge Susan M.

Authorities say the boy admitted to possessing the weapon, without his parents’ knowledge, during a police interview.

On Thursday, police searched the home and found the weapon in the boy’s bedroom, along with ammunition and other firearm-related accessories.

Police told us that the weapon has since been secured and law enforcement is working with the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) in order to E-trace the origins of the weapon.
