According to the probable cause statement, John Kingsbury, 54, was parked Monday, Nov. 28 at Northgate Middle School while he was playing basketball when someone observed he had a gun case inside his open trunk.

However, there were no cartridges in the chambers of any of the firearms.

When authorities searched the car further, they found a bag of meth inside his car under the floor mat.

Kingsbury was given a $75,000 bond.
