While taking him into custody, the investigators found Milner to be in possession of a handgun positioned in his waistband, which he was not allowed to have due to his status as a convicted felon, the sheriff said.

A continued search of his person located precursor chemicals commonly used to manufacture methamphetamine, a felony amount of methamphetamine and a misdemeanor amount of Xanax.

Milner was subsequently arrested for possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, possession of methamphetamine, possession of precursor chemicals with intent to manufacture a controlled substance and possession of Xanax, Allison said.
