CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – Police in South Carolina spotted a truck surrounded by protesters over the weekend and discovered two men inside with loaded handguns, a rifle, a wooden club, knives and a stun gun, among other weapons.

Police seized four guns from 59-year-old Richard Ray and 46-year-old Matthew Constantine.
The department said officers also discovered binoculars, a tactical vest, ammunition, knives, a glass pipe and a baton.
The men were charged with misdemeanor unlawful carrying of a handgun.
