 A 12-year-old girl is facing criminal charges after bringing stun guns into school to sell to her classmates, police say. 

A staff member at Coleman Middle School heard the student had a stun gun on campus Friday. 

When the school's resource officer took her out of class, she admitted to buying five of the weapons online and bringing them in to sell to other students, according to Tampa police.

The girl admitted to selling three of the guns on Thursday and had two of them in her possession when she was confronted, it is claimed. 

She was charged with possession of a weapon at a school and taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center, reports Fox 13.  

The cost of the Vipertek models owned by the student start from around $9.99 on Amazon. 


Police said no one had been threatened at the school, and the resource officer is now contacting students who were sold the guns in order to retrieve them. 

The girl is expected to be released pending investigation due to the non-violent nature of the offence.

  1. What a crock of shit! Charging her with possession of a weapon at a school. Stun guns are more for protection that they are for committing crimes. With all the crazies running around today I'd want my kid to have some protection if I had a kid. If these stun guns are so bad then they shouldn't be able to buy them on line. I'm sure she'd have a tougher time buying a gun online. This girl would be in about 7th grade. 7th graders don't know about all the laws that are out there. Did anyone in this girl's short life so far ever tell her she cannot bring a stungun to school? Did the school ever tell her? I thought school was about educating the kids and yet they charge them (I don't know if she got arrested, article doesn't say she did) when they break a rule. I am not even sure if this is a rule or in law somewhere. She obviously didn't know there was a rule or law against it. She should demand they pay her for the stun gun if they don't give it to the parents. This is more about indoctrination than it is about education. I can tell you one thing. When I was a kid there were certainly a couple of times I could have used a stun gun. Too bad they weren't around back then.
