A Guntown man is charged with illegally possessing weapons after deputies responded to a report of a suspicious person near a local church.

Raymond Lewis Pannell, 53, of Guntown was arrested by Deputy Dewayne Mink who discovered him near Ingram Baptist Church on County Road 6121 while responding to a 911 call reporting a suspicious male in the area, said Prentiss County Sheriff Randy Tolar.

Pannell was initially arrested on several active misdemeanor warrants but was subsequently charged with possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. He was in possession of multiple knives and firearms.

Bond was set at $10,000 on the felony charge by Justice Court Judge Richard Tollison.

Investigator Torie Jumper is in charge of the investigation. The case will be presented to the next county grand jury.

In a separate, unrelated arrest, Daniel George Bearden, 59, of Corinth, was arrested Tuesday, and charged with grand larceny.

Bearden is accused of stealing a 14-foot horse trailer from a property on Highway 145 on Aug. 24.

The trailer was recovered and returned to the owner.

Investigator Jumper will present the case to the next grand jury. Deputy Tyler Reese assisted in the investigation.
