Danial Whaley, 35, 161 Sheets Hollow Road, was charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a weapon when a search revealed a gun inside the car.
About midnight, police initially observed suspicious vehicles at 250 W. Main St. and upon investigation met Whaley, who admitted to being a convicted felon.
Whaley was first arrested on possession of ammunition since he was the owner of the vehicle in which the ammunition was seen. A search resulted in the discovery of a Smith & Wesson pistol under the driver’s seat.
Whaley was transported to the Washington County Detention Center and was being held on a $10,000 bond. He was scheduled to appear in Sessions Court on Tuesday afternoon.
