A 15-year-old boy was arrested Friday afternoon after he was seen carrying what appeared to be weapons near the Smithville School, Galloway Township police said.

Police received a call at 3:21 p.m. about a male wearing camouflage and carrying weapons on Old Port Road near the school, police said. Officers Rich Barber, Dan Weigle and K-9 Officer Mark D'Esposito responded.

The boy ignored orders to stop and ran into a wooded area, police said. When D'Esposito announced he would release his dog, Zito, the suspect came out of the woods and surrendered.

The suspect, a 15-year-old resident of Galloway, was found to be wearing a camouflage tactical vest and carrying an imitation handgun and imitation machine gun, police said. He was charged with possession of imitation firearms, disorderly conduct, obstruction of justice and resisting arrest.
