Alexandria Police officers have arrested a man who they say not only had drugs packaged for sale in his vehicle with his 6-year-old son, but also hid a loaded gun underneath the boy.

Police say 26-year-old Brandon Dale Allen faces numerous charges, including child endangerment, after a .45-caliber handgun was found under the boy.

Drug agents received a tip that Allen was allegedly delivering cocaine, marijuana and prescription pills to several locations in the city.

Officers say agents searched Allen's home where they found more cocaine and prescription pills packaged to be sold.
