Two charged with possession of a weapon by a felon

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) — Two Columbus men are behind bars after authorities arrested them for possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.

In one case, Columbus police say they responded to a call of a man in the street with a gun near 16th Street North and 8th Avenue North on October 10.

When officers arrived, they made contact with suspect Tamarcus Thomas, who was charged with carrying a concealed weapon.

Through further investigation, officers were also able to determine Thomas was a convicted felon.

He then also received the charge of possession of a weapon by a felon.

His bond was set at $35,000.

In a separate case, police arrested Richard Bernard Anderson, 43, on the same charge after finding a machete on his person.

Officers say the arrest came after they pulled up to a crowd of people who had gathered on 7th Avenue North.

Authorities made contact with Anderson and patted him down for safety.

During the pat down, they found a machete concealed in his pants.

His bond for possession of a weapon by a convicted felon was set at $5,000.
