Two arrested after gun, ammo found in car
Two Augusta men were arrested last week after they were caught with a handgun and ammunition.
Police arrested Thessalonias Holmes, 22, and Cassius Holmes, 17, on Jan. 8.
Thessalonias Holmes was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and driving on the wrong side of the road. He was being held in the Columbia County Detention Center Tuesday without bond, according to jail personnel.
Cassius Holmes was charged with possession of a weapon by someone under age and was released Jan. 8 after posting a $2,100 bond, according to jail personnel.
Deputies stopped a Pontiac Grand Prix just after midnight Jan. 8 because the driver, Thessalonias Holmes, was failing to maintain lane on Washington Road near Bobby Jones Expressway. A sheriff's office dog alerted on the vehicle, which was then searched. Police found a Hi-Point .40-caliber weapon and 40 Blazer Brass bullets hidden under the center console. The men denied owning or knowing the owner the weapon.
Thessalonias Holmes was discovered to be a convicted felon for weapons charges. As Thessalonias Holmes was being arrested, Cassius Holmes claimed ownership of the gun.
