(KAIR)--The investigation into a reported disturbance at an Atchison parking lot led to the arrest of a Kansas City, Missouri man who now faces weapon and drug-related charges.

Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, in a release, says 43-year-old Shalamar Allen was arrested shortly after 11:00 Tuesday night on charges for criminal possession of a weapon and possession of marijuana.

According to Wilson, Allen's arrest came after police were called to a parking lot in the 400 block of U.S. Highway 59 following the report of a disturbance.
The investigation at the scene led to the discovery of marijuana and a handgun, both allegedly found on Allen's person, and he was arrested.
Wilson says the arrest was made "based on [Allen's] criminal history of being a convicted felon."

Once in custody, Allen was booked into the Atchison County Jail.
