MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - A Mississippi County man was arrested Tuesday evening after an investigation by the Mississippi County Sheriff's Department led to the seizure of several marijuana plants and illegally possessed firearms.

According to Mississippi County Sheriff Keith Moore, the investigation began on Monday when his department received information that a Bertrand man was growing marijuana in his mother's garden.

Upon their arrival, Sheriff Moore and Deputy Marc Tragesser learned that David Allen Williams, 47, of Bertrand, MO, had assaulted the homeowner and fled from the area.

Sheriff Moore obtained consent to search the property, and that search led to the seizure of several marijuana plants from a backyard garden.

That evening, Deputy David Watkins and Deputy Tragesser returned to the residence and obtained consent from the owner to enter the residence.

Once inside, Deputy David Watkins and Deputy Tragesser made contact with Williams and recovered several firearms.

Due to his status as a convicted felon, Williams is prohibited from possessing a firearm.

At that time, Williams was placed under arrest and transported to the Mississippi County Detention Center.

Williams is charged with manufacture of a controlled substance.

Williams faces additional charges of unlawful possession of a firearm and domestic assault.

Williams was taken to the Mississippi County Detention Center with his bond set at $50,000.
