DOWAGIAC, Mich. – A Cass County man on probation for a Felony Firearms conviction has been arrested after police found that he had a AR-style rifle and two loaded high capacity magazines.

Theodore White was arrested Monday in Dowagiac.  The Dowagiac Public Safety Director Steven Grinnewald said in a press release that because White had prior firearms convictions, he was not legally allowed to own a firearm or ammunition.

White was charged with a probation violation and for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.  He is being held on a $10,000 bond and a probation hold.
