MOSS BLUFF, La. (KPLC) - A Moss Bluff man who was arrested after he barricaded himself inside his home on Tuesday was identified as 29-year-old Colby A. McDaniel.

Deputies came to a business on Swisco Road in Sulphur on Tuesday morning in response to a disturbance.

An employee said McDaniel, who had recently been fired, arrived at the business armed with a handgun and was wearing a tactical vest and a shotshell bandolier. Deputies were told McDaniel did not threaten or speak to anyone but was dropping off his uniforms and picking up personal items.

McDaniel was not at the scene when deputies arrived, who learned he was a convicted felon and was prohibited from possessing a firearm.

Deputies found McDaniel at his home in Moss Bluff and he later surrendered by exiting his back door, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kayla Vincent said.

Deputies searched the home and found ammunition for a .22 caliber rifle, two unloaded pistol magazines and a shotshell bandolier. Deputies also located a rifle, which had previously been reported stolen, hidden behind a ceiling tile in the bathroom, Vincent said.

McDaniel was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon; and possession of a stolen firearm. His bond is set at $40,000.
