• Rifles seized from CVU parking lot
    January 10,2013

    HINESBURG — Two rifles and ammunition have been seized from vehicles at the Champlain Valley Union High School in Hinesburg but the principal says the guns were used for hunting and he doesn’t believe the students intended to harm anyone.

    The school policy prohibits having firearms on school grounds.

    On Wednesday, the principal sent a letter to parents to let them know that several cars in the parking lot were searched and two rifles and ammunition were seized.

    Principal Sean McMannon wrote that the incident was unsettling following the mass shooting at a Connecticut school but says he is pleased that people came forward with the tip and says he’s confident that the school’s procedures worked and there is no threat to the school community.
