MIDLAND, TX (KWES) -

The City of Midland is reminding everyone that firearms are not allowed at the mall.

That's after police were called out to Midland Park Mall, just after 5 p.m. Monday afternoon.

Authorities received reports of a teen with a gun in his waist band.

Police eventually found the 15-year-old at the Lids store and he had a black and silver BB gun on him.

However, it doesn't end there.

When authorities searched him, they found marijuana and hydrocodone pills.

He was arrested on drug charges.

Midland officials say the mall is a no carry facility.
