Deputies with the Hoke County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man earlier this month for possession of a stolen firearm.
Officers arrested Bryant R. Little, 33, of the 100 block of Page Street in Rockingham on felony charges of possession of a stolen firearm, possession of a firearm by a felon, misdemeanor charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and carrying a concealed gun, and a traffic citation of driving left of center.
Deputies with the Traffic Unit were patrolling the area of Arabia Road just after 6 p.m. May 12 when they stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation. During the stop, the offices conducted a probable cause search of the vehicle and found a stolen firearm and U.S. money.
Deputies later transported the suspect to the Hoke County Detention Center on the above charges. Little received a $40,000 secured bond.
