Plainfield police have charged a 13-year-old boy with breach of peace after getting a report of a child at a bus stop with a pellet gun, police said.

Police received a call at 7:50 a.m. from a concerned citizen who said a young child was in possession of what he believed to be a long pellet or BB gun while waiting for his bus in the Moosup village of Plainfield. 

When the caller approached the boy, he ran and appeared to have discarded the pellet gun, police said.

Before police arrived, the student had gotten onto the school bus and was en-route to the Plainfield Central School. 

Police said they found a long rifle pellet gun at the child’s home. It was not brought on the bus or into any of the Plainfield schools and no one was threatened, police said.

Police said they were in constant contact with the superintendent of schools and faculty at both the Plainfield Central School and Plainfield Memorial School and Plainfield Police Department took the child into custody.

A juvenile summons for breach of peace in the second degree. The child and his parents are scheduled to appear in the Willimantic Juvenile Court at a later date.
