CANTON, Ga. (AP) -- The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office says the 17-year-old student charged with taking an unloaded gun to Woodstock High School last week is out of jail after posting bond.
 
 Forrest Busby had been detained at the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center since last Thursday. Sheriff's office spokesman Sgt. Jay Baker says the teenager's stepmother posted the $36,000 bond last night.
 
 Busby faces trial on three felonies and four misdemeanors after police seized three stolen guns and about 200 rounds of ammunition from Busby's home.
 
 Three schools -- Woodstock High, Woodstock Middle and Etowah High -- were locked down for three hours Thursday after police were alerted that a 15-year-old boy had run away with stolen firearms.
 
 Baker says the 15-year-old remains in the county's youth detention center.
