Weapons were seized from students at two schools last week, but school officials did not press criminal charges against either student.
An 8-year-old was found to be carrying a pocketknife at Meadow Lane School Thursday afternoon, according to Goldsboro police. And a knife was found at 8:30 a.m. Friday on an 11-year-old at Brogden Middle School, the Wayne County Sheriff's Office reported.
In neither case did the student carrying the knife threaten others with it, reports said.
The Wayne County Sheriff's Office is investigating these reports:
*A Confederate flag was taken from in front of a home on Lucky Oak Road either Thursday night or Friday morning.
*An ATW ran over 16 campaign signs that were located at the intersection of Edna Lane and U.S. 70 Saturday afternoon.
*Someone broke open doors at Gold Star Homes, U.S. 70, Friday and stole a red leather couch, valued at $1,000, and a wooden table, worth $200. Damage was estimated at $1,000.
The Goldsboro Police Department is investigating these reports:
*A DVD player is missing after a break-in in the 900 block of Lincoln Drive. Renatta Q. Lane reported the theft Saturday.
*Charles Henderson Bryant reported Saturday the theft of a pistol, two air rifles, a sword, a PlayStation II and 10 DVDs from his home in the 100 block of Georgia Avenue. The missing items were valued at $1,340.
