Vicksburg police officers recovered a stolen handgun after responding Sunday to a call of shots fired.
On Sunday, Oct. 18, at 11:24 p.m. officers responded to the 1000 block of Stadium Drive after receiving a call that shots had been fired in the area. The officers saw a dark colored Honda leaving the area and stopped the vehicle.
Noticing the strong smell of marijuana coming from the Honda, the officers searched it and found a Springfield .45-caliber pistol that had been reported stolen from an address on Cain Ridge Road Aug. 3.
Officers arrested Jeremy Johnson for possession of a stolen firearm.
Johnson appeared before Judge Angela Carpenter in Vicksburg Municipal Court Monday, Oct. 19. Carpenter set his bond at $75,000 and bound him over to the Warren County grand jury.
