Back To Front Page


A Boone Grove High School student was detained on Wednesday after he was found to be in possession of a knife and alcohol on school property, the Porter County Sheriff’s Police said.

According to police, on Wednesday morning a student advised Principal Clay Corman that he’d seen a knife in the back pocket of a 16-year-old boy, after the boy’s shirt had risen up. Corman immediately called the 16-year-old to his office, where the boy denied having a knife.

Corman then asked the boy to empty his pockets, at which time a pocket knife with a three-inch blade was found in his front right trouser pocket, police said. In a subsequent search of the boy’s backpack, a small bottle of rum was also found, police said.

The boy, a sophomore at BGHS, was taken into custody on delinquency charges of possession of a knife on school grounds and minor possession of alcohol and transported to the Porter County Juvenile Detention Center.
