Richland County prosecutors have declined to pursue felony charges against the former Ontario Schools transportation director.

Brian Rogers was placed on paid administrative leave in August, after being found in possession of six handguns on school property, two in ankle holsters and four in his car.

Superintendent Lisa Carmichael says Rogers resigned effective October 31st, citing personal reasons.

She and the school board are starting the search for his replacement.

First Assistant Prosecutor Brent Robinson cited a section of state law which states a bus garage is not a school building because no students are there. 

Ontario Police Captain Dale Meyers says no misdemeanor charges will be filed and the case is closed.
