Bond lowered for Rowlett teen

The bond has been reduced for a Rowlett teenager who was arrested after his suspicious behavior near a school soccer game attracted police attention.

17-year-old Daniel Horta had a million dollar bond for drug possession that was reduced to $750,000. If he posts bond, the judge had ordered electronic monitoring and home confinement.

He was arrested February 27th when police spotted him parked alone behind a recreational center near Rowlett High School where a soccer game was being played. 

Police say they found drugs, a semi-automatic rifle, hundreds of rounds of ammo, and a Halloween mask inside his van.

He told police he wasn't a school shooter, he just "liked guns" and wasn't "planning anything".   

Horta is also charged with possession of child pornography and a weapons violation.
