At a traffic stop on Tuesday, May 26, police arrested a convicted felon who allegedly was concealing a deadly weapon. Police say David James, 55 of Brownsville had the weapon hidden in his back pocket.
Later that day, after receiving an anonymous drug complaint, police traveled to the home of David James and Deanna Miller to investigate. Police say Miller, 38, of Brownsville gave consent to search the property.
During the search, police found a .380 handgun, a number of pills in an unmarked container, and two syringes, with one containing suspected meth.
Miller was arrested on scene for convicted felon in possession of a handgun, possession of a controlled substance, (1st degree meth), possession of a controlled substance, (3rd degree), prescription controlled substance not in original container, drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of a minor.
After Miller was transported and lodged in the Hart County Jail, police then arrested David James again, for the exact same charges as Miller, while he was still in jail from the illegal weapons charge from earlier in the day.
The investigation was led by Deputy Jordan Jones. Jones was assisted by Officer Garth Avery, Deputy Wally Ritter, and Constable Tim Skees.
