Officers with the Vicksburg Police Department arrested a man Friday for possession of a stolen firearm.
Xavier Porter, 24, of Vicksburg, was arrested Friday at 9:49 p.m. at a traffic stop on U.S. Highway 61 South near Warrenton Road. After officers observed him trying to conceal a handgun, they searched his vehicle and found a Glock Model 37 .45-caliber pistol. The pistol had been reported stolen in Georgia.
Porter appeared before Judge Angela Carpenter in Vicksburg Municipal Court Monday on one count of possession of a stolen firearm. She set his bond at $35,000 and bound him over to the Warren County grand jury.
