A Munson man is facing charges for reportedly carrying a gun around the yard of a Morris Township residence while he was allegedly high on methamphetamine.
Gaige Michael Allen Hubler, 19, was charged with felony counts of possession of a firearm with manufacture number altered and firearm not to be carried without a license, as well as a summary charge of public drunkenness by state police at Clearfield as a result of his actions on Aug. 21.
Hubler waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday during centralized court.
According to court documents, his bail was lowered from $20,000 monetary to the same amount unsecured and he was released from the jail where he had been held since the incident.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, when police arrived at the Old Turnpike Road residence in Morris Township they saw Hubler who was mumbling, appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance and standing near a vehicle. The truck was reportedly littered with items as if someone had been living in it.
Hubler was asked if he had been living in his truck and he indicated he was, police said. After receiving his consent to search the truck, officers reportedly found a revolver concealed in a lock box in the center console.
Hubler does not have a permit to have a concealed weapon, police said. The serial number on the grip of the gun was allegedly painted over with thick, yellow paint that obscured the serial number.
Hubler admitted to having the gun and to being under the influence of methamphetamine, according to the report.
