LAS VEGAS, Nev. – An arrest report says Las Vegas police seized a small arsenal of guns, a gallon plastic bag containing marijuana, multiple doses of the anxiety medication Xanax and a small amount of methamphetamine at the home of reality TV star Chumlee.

Attorneys for the defendant, whose real name is Austin Lee Russell, aren’t talking about the report made public Tuesday following the arrest last week of the Pawn Stars cast member.

Russell posted $62,000 bail and was released from jail pending a May 23 court date.
