(Memphis) A man was arrested after police say they found him selling drugs just feet from an elementary school in Hickory Hill.

They say when they searched Curtis Robinson's home they not only found drugs, but guns, even one that was stolen.

The house is right next to Newberry Elementary School and police say they watched Robinson deal drugs as children walked-by.

“That is unacceptable,” said Father Cshean Smith, who has a 6-year-old son going to the school.

Police say Robinson had a gun hidden, with its serial number scratched off, inside the grill also in his backyard.

Authorities say they also found seven shotguns and rifles, four of them fully loaded, and one of them stolen from a burglary in 2011.

Court papers say investigators also found marijuana, various pills, and ecstasy.

Smith says he is bothered to hear that news, “I didn't know that was going on and it kind of concerns me.”

Robinson is now in jail with a bond of $50,000.
