(KAIR)--A late April disturbance led to the discovery of a handgun, and to this week’s arrest of an Atchison man on charges related to its possession.

According to a release from Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, 20-year-old Dwayne Nixon was taken into custody Monday for possession of a firearm by a felon.

Following his arrest, Nixon was booked into the Atchison County Jail.

According to Wilson, Nixon had the handgun when police were called to the 700 block of Parallel Street on April 30 for the report of a disturbance.

The report states that “an investigation determined that [Nixon] has a felony conviction in the state of New Jersey,” making it illegal for him to possess a firearm.
