ROCK HILL A student at a Rock Hill alternative school was arrested last week after police found him with a wallet filled with debit cards and a Passport that did not belong to him, and a knife on his belt, police say.

Police were sent to the Flexible Learning Center on Flint Street Extension at about 6:30 p.m. Thursday after a staff member reported that a male student, 16, had a women’s Coach wallet containing several debit and credit cards, according to a Rock Hill police report. Police spoke with the boy, who pulled the wallet from his pocket.

That’s when an officer noticed a case on his belt that held a large lock-blade knife, the report states. The boy also had the brown wallet, which contained six credit cards, four of which were outdated. The wallet also contained a health insurance card and a passport issued to another person.

Police are still investigating why the boy had the wallet, the report states. He was charged with carrying weapons on school grounds and will appear in family court.
