Police have charged three men in relation to an alleged incident at Stanthorpe State High School yesterday afternoon, Wednesday 15 May.

A statement issued by the Queensland Police Service (QPS) says local police will allege that at about 1pm a silver Triton dual-cab ute was seen driving past the school and an occupant fired several pellets from a gel blaster out of the front passenger window of the ute at the school office window.

“The rear passenger allegedly got out of the car and spoke to the Vice Principal before fleeing in the ute,” the QPS statement said.

“Local police intercepted the ute in Amosfield Street and three men in the ute were apprehended and the gel blaster gun was allegedly located in the vehicle.

“The three men, two aged 20 and the other 19, were each charged with going armed to cause fear and are all due to appear in the Stanthorpe Magistrates Court on Wednesday June 19.”
