A 12-year-old middle school student was arrested Friday for selling stun guns to her classmates.
Police say a staff member at Coleman Middle School alerted the administration that students were reporting Reese Cash had a stun-gun on campus. When investigators arrived, two black Vipertek stun-guns were in her possession.
Cash admitted to purchasing five electric stun-guns online and brought them to school to sell to other students, according to a statement from Tampa Bay police.
Authorities say she also admitted to selling three stun-guns the day before she was caught.
Cash was taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center and has been charged with possession of a weapon on school property.
