MASON, Ohio (WHIO) -- A 37-year-old Texas trucker accused of trying to snatch a child at Kings Island had three guns and 4,000 rounds of ammunition in his truck, officials said at his court appearance Thursday.

Rodney L. Grisham waived his right to a preliminary hearing in Mason Municipal Court and the case was sent to a Warren County grand jury, WCPO-TV reported.

The truck driver from Dallas, charged with felony drug possession, remains in the county jail on $200,000 bond.

Mason police arrested Grisham at the park July 3 after someone reported him acting suspiciously in the area of the Diamondback roller coaster.

Police said he was using a hidden camera in his sunglasses to videotape children.

Police originally said they found a loaded firearm in his semitrailer as well as children’s videos and toys, a police-style baton, Taser and non-licensed prescription medication.

Grisham admitted to violating a parole agreement that prevents him from having a firearm.

Maybe ActionNewsJax won't censor this one. Why the blurb about the ammo and the guns? This tidbit had no bearing on the crime allegedly committed other than being an item for the anti-gun media to sensationalize the story with.
