Convicted felons out on parole found with drugs, guns

Three convicted felons out on parole have been arrested in Maries County after they were found with drugs, guns and ammunition during a traffic stop Thursday.

Deputies stopped the vehicle on Highway 63, just north of Vienna, and found what they suspected to be heroin, methamphetamines and drug paraphernalia, as well as a firearm, which authorities reffered to as an assault rifle, and several rounds of ammunition. One of the three, 45-year-old Christopher Harris of Dixon, also had a concealed weapon.

Harris was arrested for unlawful use of a weapon, a class D felony, and unlawful possession of a firearm, a class C felony. The other two â?? 28-year-old Christofer Howe and 29-year-old Jessica Dumas, both of Dixon â?? were arrested for possession of a controlled substance, a class C felony.

All three are in the Maries County Jail, each on a $50,000 bond.
