On May 20, 2020, a deputy responded to a reported physical disturbance on Alford Road. Upon arrival, he observed a suspect, later identified as Oral Dusty Joiner, placing an AK 47 rifle behind the seat of a truck. When ordered to show his hands, Mr. Joiner complied and was placed in handcuffs for the safety of bystanders and the deputy.
Mr. Joiner’s criminal history revealed that he is a convicted felon. Mr. Joiner was then arrested. The rifle was found to contain a round in the chamber and a magazine holding 5 additional rounds. A witness stated that Mr. Joiner and his girlfriend had an altercation earlier in the night and the girlfriend went to her brother’s residence to avoid further conflict.

Upon his final return, law enforcement was notified and responded.
