The Lexington Sheriff’s Department announced the arrest of a contract employee with Gray Collegiate Academy’s food service vendor.

Tevin Trapp, 25, is accused of having marijuana and a gun on school property. He is charged with simple possession of marijuana and carrying a weapon on school grounds, according to arrest warrants.

“While patrolling campus on foot Thursday afternoon, a school resource officer smelled marijuana coming from Trapp’s vehicle when Trapp was on duty in the cafeteria,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Trapp told the SRO he’d smoked marijuana in the car and retrieved a ‘blunt’ from the front console.”

According to Koon, Trapp then advised the deputy that a handgun was in the center console.

“The SRO found more marijuana in the center console along with a handgun, which had a loaded magazine in it,” said Koon.

Trapp was transported to the Lexington County Detention Center. The LCSD noted that Trapp works for the food service provider, not the school.
