A Billings man, caught with drugs, a stolen cell phone and two BB guns was arrested early Monday morning outside West High School, according to charging documents.  The Billings Gazette reports that 18-year-old Mason Ray Loughnane was scheduled to appear in Yellowstone County Justice Court Monday on a felony drug possession charge.  Loughnane also faces misdemeanor counts of theft, drug possession and possession of a BB gun within city limits.

At approximately 4:15 a.m. Monday, the Billings Police Department got a call related to a weapons complaint at the high school, saying a man had BB guns behind the school.  Loughnane was talking with another man when police arrived.  The second man, who works at West High, said he was inside getting paperwork when he came out and saw Loughnane.  Upon booking, officers found marijuana and methamphetamine on Loughnane.
