LEWISBURG, Tenn. (WKRN) — A man was arrested after a sword and a BB gun pistol were found Monday inside of a “suspicious vehicle” parked on the campus of an elementary school in Tennessee, authorities said.

Hunter Gigandet, 25, was booked into the Marshall County jail on a charge of carrying weapons on school property.

The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office said a school resource officer at Marshall Elementary School in Lewisburg, Tennessee, received a call of a “suspicious vehicle” on school property around 1:30 p.m. Monday. When Gigandet’s vehicle was searched, investigators said they found the sword and a BB gun pistol.

Upon further investigation, the school resource officer determined Gigandet “had no reason to be on school property.”
