BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Police say the Burlington student accused of threatening Champlain Valley Union High School this week had airsoft guns at the home.

The Hinesburg Police Department says its officers and Vermont State Police spoke for a long time with the student and his parents Thursday. They searched the home and found several airsoft-style guns that shoot nonlethal plastic pellets, but no firearms. Officers say they are “confident” that the student does not have access to guns.

The student was served with an order of protection and is scheduled to appear in court next Thursday.

Police will be on patrol at CVU again Friday.
