TEMPLE, Texas (KWTX) Temple High School student James Godfrey, 18, whom a campus officer arrested on Oct. 2 after learning he had a handgun, was indicted Wednesday for unlawfully carrying a weapon in a prohibited place.

A tip from three classmates led to the arrest.

Godfrey remains in the Bell County Jail in lieu of $150,000 bond.

Temple Superintendent Bobby Ott commended the three students for coming forward.

He said the student was identified and removed from the school population within 10 minutes.

An initial investigation showed the gun that was recovered didn’t represent a threat to the campus, he said.
