GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - Police in New Jersey say they found an AK-47 assault rifle along with other firearms and 19 pounds of marijuana in the home of a man after he mentioned having a gun following a meeting at a high school.

Police say a teacher at Timber Creek High School in Gloucester Township, just southeast of Philadelphia, heard Michael Shaffer mention that he had a gun in his car. The teacher told a police officer posted in the school and a search was set off.

Officials tell the Courier-Post (https://on.cpsj.com/1ocCpdp) the 55-year-old was in the school Thursday morning for a meeting. They say no students or school staff were in danger.

Shaffer is being held in Camden County Jail with bail set at $110,000 on weapons and drug charges.
