An Independence County man has been charged with two felonies in connection with a stolen firearm that the accused valued at $20.

The court information said Independence County authorities took 35-year-old Daniel D. Jones into custody after the gun owner found Jones in possession of the stolen 20-gauge pump shotgun.

Jones is accused of theft by receiving and being a previously convicted felon in possession of a firearm — both felonies.

The court record also said Jones is being charged as a habitual offender having previously been convicted of four or more felonies.

Jones’ bond was set by Judge Chaney Taylor at $10,000.
