Just one day after posting unconditional bail, the owner of a controversial head shop in Duluth was arrested again Wednesday night on a federal gun charge, the News Tribune reports.

Jim Carlson reopened his store, Last Place on Earth, Tuesday evening shortly after he was released from the St. Louis County Jail. Carlson, 55, and his son, Joseph Gellerman, 34, were both arrested and charged with selling illegal synthetic drugs at their business.

Duluth police tell the Northland NewsCenter a gun found during a raid of Carlson's store last Friday violated terms of a pending federal case.

Carlson, Gellerman and two others face 54 federal counts for violating drug and product-labeling laws. That trial is set to begin in September.
