LETHBRIDGE: An incident that forced the lockdown of Magrath schools back in March, has lead to 18-months of probation for a 19-year old man.
Staff at the Magrath High school contacted police after Trevor Bevers left in an agitated state following a meeting with teachers and his father. They told police that they believed he may be a risk to harm himself.
His council stated that there were no threats made against anyone at the school and that the lockdown went into effect as a precaution.
Bevers was in contact with police, who found and arrested him unharmed a short time later on a rural road outside of Magrath with a handgun that was properlly registered to him.
The sentence stems from a guilty plea August 15th to the charge of Possession of a Firearm Dangerous to the Public Peace.
After a request from Bevers council the judge decided to give Bevers a Conditional Discharge, meaning if he makes it through the probation without any problems, he will not have a criminal record.
