While on patrol, Oneida Police Officer Chad Jones received a BOLO (be on the look out) for a red Nissan Altima that was believed to be heading to Cash Express in Oneida from Fentress County and the male was in possession of an alleged stolen firearm.  Officer Jones observed a vehicle matching the description of the BOLO at the gas pumps at Lee’s Food Mart at the Food Court.  Officer Jones pulled in behind the vehicle and confirmed the vehicle through the tag.  He then activated the blue lights and at gunpoint gave the driver of the vehicle, identified as Cole Broady, commands to exit the vehicle and get on the ground.  Broady complied with the commands.  Officer Jones found on Broady’s person, in the pocket of his hoodie, a loaded Smith and Wesson .380 caliber handgun.  Broady stated that the other firearm was under the seat on the passenger side of the vehicle.  Officer Zack Strunk, who was on the scene, retrieved a Smith and Wesson .40 caliber handgun that, after running the serial number, came back as stolen out of Fentress County.  Broady was arrested and charged with Unlawful Carrying or Possession of a Weapon.  He was transported to the Scott County Justice Center for booking.
