Bail for a 21-year-old woman who police say brought a fully loaded handgun into South Philadelphia High School Thursday in a diaper bag has been set at $200,000, the District Attorney's Office announced Friday.
Kelly Jones, who cops said is no stranger to law enforcement, went to the high school on Broad Street near Snyder Avenue around 10:45 a.m. to sign up for an evening high-school diploma program for adults, police and school officials said. When school police scanned the diaper bag she was carrying for her infant -- who was also with her at the time -- they found the .40-caliber gun, which police said had an obliterated serial number.
Jones is charged with possession of a firearm with an altered serial number, possession of a firearm without a license, carrying a weapon on school property and related offenses. She's set to appear in court for a preliminary hearing Jan. 29.
