PORTLAND, Ore. - A man was arrested Tuesday after he was spotted taking an Uzi into a barber shop.

Portland police said someone saw 30-year-old Ryan Presley hide an Uzi in his jacket and walk into a barber shop near 12th and Alberta.

Officers showed up and staked out the barber shop, thinking Presley might try to rob it. But he didn't. He just walked out.

Police stopped him and found the Uzi. It wasn't loaded.

Police said Presley did buy the gun legally. He was taking it to the barber shop to show a friend.

Presley faces charges of unlawful possession of firearms.
