Cannon County Sheriff's Deputies recently spotted a man they had been looking for on outstanding warrants and ended up arresting two for warrants.
According to Cannon County Sheriff's Department reports, Deputy Jordan McGee was on patrol on old Murfreesboro Road when he observed a white Ford truck owned by Ronald Jernigan sitting at Russell's Market. Knowing that he had a warrant for his arrest, McGee pulled in and walked up to the vehicle. That's when he noticed a passenger in the vehicle that was identified as Christopher McCardell who also had a warrant out of Cannon County.
Both individuals were placed in cuffs and Mr. Jernigan gave consent to search his vehicle. Between the seat and the console there was a Smith and Wesson shorty .45 pistol. A search of the serial number came back that the gun was stolen out of Rutherford County.
Both were charged with Possession of Stolen property and theft over $500. They will answer to the extra charges in General Sessions Court on November 3rd.
