Drug agent's gun stolen, 3 people arrested

ETOWAH COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - Three people were taken into custody for theft related offenses in Etowah County last week.

Investigators said 24-year-old Johnathan Davis, 29-year-old Jeremy McCurry, and 31-year-old Mary Camp Corrothers were all charged with one count of second degree receiving stolen property. McCurry was also charged with giving false identification to a law enforcement officer. He also faces an outstanding warrant for unlawful possession of a controlled substance.

Officials said the trio received a stolen .45 caliber Kimber automatic pistol taken from an Etowah County Drug Enforcement agent's vehicle on November 23, 2012. The DEU had issued that pistol to the agent.

Etowah County Sheriff's deputies Craig Tyler and Tyler St. Clair, along with Rainbow City Officer Camp Yancey, found the weapon during a driver's license check point at the intersection of Highway 77 and Industrial Parkway in Rainbow City.

McCurry was arrested because he gave false identification when their vehicle was stopped, and Davis was arrested for current warrants at the Rainbow City Police Department.

Authorities took Corrothers into custody when they found the stolen pistol while doing inventory of the vehicle before it was towed.

All three were taken to the Etowah County Detention Center. Deputies released Davis and Corrothers on $2,500 bond. McCurry is still in custody.
