The reopening of Last Place on Earth didn’t last long. Jim Carlson was back in jail Wednesday night, this time on a federal gun charge.


Carlson opened his store Tuesday evening after posting bail and being released from St. Louis County Jail. He and his son, Joseph Gellerman, were arrested Friday on charges of selling an illegal substance, a powder-like product that police said contained chemicals banned by state law.

Gellerman posted bail late Monday.
