POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) - The Poplar Bluff Police Department located a man wanted in connection to various criminal charges.

Randy A. Wynn, 31, is facing the following charges: felonious restraint, armed criminal action, unlawful use of a weapon, assault and unlawful possession of a firearm by certain person.  

Wynn was taken into custody around 9:15 a.m. on Monday at his home in the 1300 block of Mill Street in Poplar Bluff. 

Police recovered his white Ford Ranger Saturday night. 

Police believe Wynn was involved in a road rage incident around 4 p.m. Saturday.

Officials say according to a witness, Wynn thought someone cut him off. Wynn and the other driver then pulled into the parking lot of Dexter Barbecue.

Wynn then allegedly pulled a gun on the driver, but drove off when the driver pulled a gun of his own.

No shots were fired and no one was hurt.

Wynn was considered armed and dangerous.

Counting this most recent incident, the Poplar Bluff Police Department has three open weapon cases against him since May of this year.

In addition to the aforementioned pending charges, Wynn currently had two active warrants for his arrest.

He was taken into custody without incident and taken to the Poplar Bluff Police Department where he was booked in on a Missouri Board of Probation/Parole warrant for parole violation (no bond) and a Poplar Bluff Municipal warrant for failure to appear on an original charge of driving under the influence ($500 bond).

Wynn was taken to the Butler County Jail.
