A man who tried to steal guns from Gene Taylor’s last year is back in trouble with the law.

Eighteen-year-old Evan Phillips is now facing DUI and multiple drug-related charges.

The Grand Junction Police Department says Phillips was pulled over on North Avenue Sunday.

Inside his car, they found marijuana, drug paraphernalia, four baseball bats and a 12” knife.

Officials say another juvenile male in the car was issued a summons for drug-related charges.
