North Idaho Man Arrested For Carrying A Gun Into A Campus Dorm

Nov 21, 2014

A northern Idaho man who carried a concealed weapon into a dormitory at Lewis-Clark State College is facing charges.

The Lewiston Tribune reports that 19-year-old Wesley S. Bowler of Harpster is charged with carrying a concealed weapon without permit.

Bowler, who is not a student, was taken into custody at the dormitory on Wednesday and police seized a Kel-Tec P-11 pistol with a loaded magazine.

Bowler was taken to the Nez Perce County Jail and released after paying $300 of his bond amount.

The law allows those with an enhanced concealed carry permit to carry a concealed firearm on campus, but residence halls and areas that seat more than 1,000 people are off limits.
