Deborah Farley is accused of putting the weapon in her son’s bag, and has been arrested on multiple weapon possession charges and endangerment.
It was unclear why she had done so and whether the child was aware he was carrying the weapon when she dropped him off at his public elementary school, a police department spokeswoman said…
Around 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, according to police, Farley dropped the child off at Wave Preparatory Elementary School, located in Queens. Shortly afterwards, she returned to school, saying she had to take her son out of class for a dental appointment, the police said.
She then returned to the school once more at around 10:00 a.m., telling officials that her son had given a weapon, taken from his school bag, to another student.
