Careful with That Weapon

A warrant served on a Watts Mill area resident yesterday appears to indicate he is facing a charge due to an accidental incident last month. The Laurens County Sheriff’s Office has charged 39-year old Eugene Steven Tucker II of 465 Setzler Road, Laurens with Carrying Weapons on School Property. In a warrant, SRO Deputy Walter A. Summers Jr. states that on May 20th Mr. Tucker did not follow Concealed Weapons Permit rules. The warrant indicates that this failure to follow CWP rules was evidenced with Tucker’s weapon being found in a driveway at Laurens District 55 High School on May 20th. Eugene Tucker II was released on a $2,000 personal recognizance bond.
