When authorities in Fayetteville arrested a Pine Forest High School student for an outstanding warrant Friday morning, they ended up arresting another teen after authorities said they found two guns on the school's campus.

Fayetteville police officers and Cumberland County deputies arrived at the school to arrest 18-year old Angel Dickinson for common law robbery.

When they searched his vehicle, they found a shotgun which may have been used in a recent crime, according to police.

During the arrest, authorities noticed another teen sitting in his vehicle in the school's parking lot.

Officials said the teen, 18-year-old Paul Algarin, Jr., had recently withdrawn from school and should not have been on the campus.

Cumberland County deputies and school officials searched his vehicle and found a Ruger 380 under the front seat.

The firearm had been reported stolen from the Lumberton Police Department.

Algarin has been charged with carrying a concealed weapon, possessing a firearm on school property, trespassing and possessing a stolen weapon.
