An Oxford man was arrested recently for being in possession of a weapon while being a felon.
On April 2, the Oxford Police Department conducted a traffic stop near the city of
Oxford Parking Garage.
During the stop, officers discovered a firearm in the possession of Deshawn Lewis, 27, of Oxford, possession and learned that Lewis was a convicted felon. Lewis was taken into custody and charged with Possession of a Weapon by a Felon.
Lewis went before a Lafayette County Justice Court judge for his initial bond hearing and was given a $10,000 bond. It was revoked due to Lewis being out on a felony bond.
