WATSON, LA (WAFB) -

A 15-year-old boy is now in the Florida Parishes Detention Center after he was seen on a bicycle near Live Oak Middle school and South Live Oak Elementary school in Watson, LA.

A Livingston Parish School employee saw the teen, and what appeared to be a potential threat, near the schools. The schools were placed on lock down around 10 a.m.

The teen never stepped foot on school property, but he did have an air-soft pellet pistol, knife and hatchet in his possession when police took him into custody on Cecil Drive.

A Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office School Resource Officer and LPSO Deputies were able to quickly take the 15-year-old into custody.

"While we don't believe the intent was to harm - protocols put in place by the Livingston Parish School System and the LPSO worked just as practiced. Observant and quick-thinking individuals took action and a potential threat was taken out of the equation. As a father of 2 children in the Livingston Parish School System, I am grateful for the open communication between School Officials & Law Enforcement," said Livingston Parish Sheriff Jason Ard.

The teen was charged with one count of terrorizing and two counts of illegal carrying of weapons.
