DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A 39-year-old Des Moines school janitor has been charged with carrying a weapon while working on school grounds.

The Des Moines district says it has fired John Keith, who was arrested Monday. Officers say they found a loaded handgun in Keith’s vehicle. A police report says Keith showed the gun to another employee on March 9 and talked about his conceal carry permit.

A police spokesman, Sgt. Jason Halifax, says even people who have legal permits to carry aren’t authorized to have guns with them or in their vehicles while on school grounds.

Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney for Keith who could be contacted to comment on the case.
