CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -
A Mississippi man is facing weapons charges after a search revealed he was in possession of a stolen firearm, according to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.
Authorities said on March 9, at approximately 2 a.m., a Combined Anti-Drug Task Force (C.A.T. Team) detective conducted a stop on an SUV traveling eastbound on I-10 near the Enterprise Boulevard exit in Lake Charles for a traffic violation.
Authorities said the driver, 35-year-old James A. Sims, of Holly Springs, Miss., began to act suspiciously during the traffic stop. Authorities said the detective allowed his trained and certified drug detection K9 "Mako" to conduct a free air sniff around the SUV.
"After Mako provided a positive response to the odor of a controlled substance, Sims advised he and two other passengers had smoked marijuana in the SUV approximately two hours prior," the release states.
Authorities said during a subsequent search of the SUV, the detective recovered a .40 caliber handgun with a 10 round magazine in the firearm. After running the firearm through NCIC, it was discovered that the firearm had been reported stolen through Houston Police Department in 2010.
Sims was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with illegal possession of a stolen firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He was released on March 11 on a $14,000 bond set by Judge Ron Ware.
