An 18-year-old Bartlesville High School student was taken into custody this week after police found a machete in his pickup truck at the school.

According to court documents, the machete was identified as a Gerber Bear Gryller Machete.

Hubler is now being held on $30,000 bond. He is due back in court May 3.
