KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) A woman who was caught with a handgun in May at Killeen High School has been indicted for unlawfully carrying weapon in a prohibited place

Gloria Woods, 36, of Killeen, was arrested on May 29.

She remains in the Bell County Jail where she’s held in lieu of bonds totaling $117,000.

She’s also charged with criminal trespass and possession of a controlled substance, according to online jail records.

Woods, who had been warned to stay away from the school after a trespassing incident on May 7, arrived at the school on May 29 and entered the main office, Killeen ISD spokesman Terry Abbott said at the time of the incident.

“KISD police stopped her and removed her to an adjacent office where they arrested her on a trespass warrant,” he said.

“As KISD police prepared to transport Woods to jail, she told officers she was carrying a weapon. When police searched her, they found a concealed loaded .40 caliber pistol and a full ammunition clip,” he said.
