Tommy Lamar Thomas, 55 of Rome, was arrested this week after reports said a traffic stop for attempting to conceal the identity of a vehicle led officers to find two sawed-off shotguns.
Police said that they pulled Thomas over on East 19th Street after he was found driving a vehicle with another’s tag. It was then discovered that Thomas was driving the vehicle without insurance and on a suspended license.
A search of the car led officers to find the two guns, in which had their serial numbers altered.
Thomas, a convicted felon, is not allowed to be in possession of firearms.
Thomas is charged with alteration of a serial number on a firearm, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, two counts possession of a sawed-off shotgun, concealing the identity of a vehicle, driving on a suspended license, driving without insurance and two counts failure to appear.
