A Centre County Christian Academy student accused of bringing a rifle to school pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge July 19.
Cody Confer, 18, of Bellefonte, was arrested March 10 after allegedly telling an adult volunteer at the school that he had a weapon in his vehicle and “enough ammunition to shoot up the school.” Spring Township police were called to the school and took Confer into custody.
Centre County Christian Academy is a private school in Spring Township, with just more than 100 students.
Upon searching his vehicle, police found an airsoft gun, a Rebel Arms rifle, two boxes of ammo, a box of Gold Wolf performance .223 caliber ammo, a box of American Eagle Rem and another box of Gold Wolf performance ammunition, according to court documents.
