Deputy Jordan McGee was on patrol on Old Murfreesboro Road when he discovered a white Ford truck owned by Ronald Jernigan sitting at a market.
"Knowing that he had a warrant for his arrest, I pulled in and activated my emergency equipment, When I walked up to the vehicle, I noticed a passenger in the vehicle that was identified as Christopher McCardell, who also had a warrant out of Cannon County," McGee reported.
Both individuals were cuffed and Jernigan gave consent to search his vehicle. A Smith and Wesson .45-caliber pistol was discovered between the seat and console, McGee said. A check through NCIC was performed and the gun was reported stolen out of Rutherford County.
"Both individuals were asked who the gun belonged to and both stated it was not either one of theirs," McGee reported.
Jernigan and McCardell were transported to the Cannon County Jail and served with warrants for possession of stolen property and theft over $500. A court date is set for Nov. 3 in General Sessions Court.
