A West Valley High School student has been arrested and charged after allegedly stealing multiple guns from a family member.

According to court documents - his family believed he was planning to take those stolen weapons to an anti-gun protest on campus late last week.

18-year old - west valley student Jared Cagwin - has been charged with theft in the second degree after stealing several firearms from a family member's home.

At this time Troopers are unsure what his motive was.

But because Cagwin stole the guns on the same morning of the anti-gun "walk-out" at west Valley, Cagwin's aunt was worried he was going to bring the guns to school.

After lying to Troopers about where his car was - they found it in the West Valley parking lot.

One of the stolen firearms *WAS found in the glove box.

Again Cagwin was charged with theft in the second degree.

The school district and troopers did not respond to our request for comment.
