PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Palm Beach County high school student is facing multiple weapons charges after she allegedly brought two Tasers and marijuana edibles to school.

The Palm Beach County School Board Police say Laniya Royal was found with the items at Palm Beach Lakes High School last week.

An officer wrote in an arrest report reviewed by

“The first Taser is a Blue Vipertek, and a (the second taser) looks like an iPhone. The two tasers and the marijuana were found in the book bag of 18-year-old Laniyon Royal. The book bag was administratively searched by Assistant Principal Charlyn Lowery due to the odor of marijuana from the bag. It was then that Lowery discovered the aforementioned contents.”

“Being that Laniyon was in actual possession of the two tasers, I find probable cause to charge (her) with possession of weapon/destructive device on school property. No charges will be filed for the marijuana or the possible edibles at this time. All objects were turned in for destruction to Palm Beach School District Police Department.”

Royal spent a night in the Palm Beach County Jail and was later released on $1,000 bond. A court date is pending. It was not immediately clear if she was permitted to return to school.
