The investigation into students smoking on one Steuben County high school campus resulted in the arrest of an 18 year old teen on a gun charge.
The school resource officer assigned to Avoca Central School discovered a student to be in possession of several capsules of a controlled substance. A search of Alec Bowen's pickup truck revealed a gun concealed in the cab. Investigators did not release the type of weapon they found.
After being arraigned on felony drug possession and the misdemeanor gun charge, Bowen was sent to Steuben County Jail in lieu of bail.
