Man faces felony firearm charges

— A Grangeville man faces firearm-related felonies resulting from his New Year’s Eve arrest.

A Jan. 13 preliminary hearing is set for Clint C. Canady, 27, on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of stolen property, and carrying a concealed weapon while under the influence, all felonies; and misdemeanor resisting and obstructing an officer. Canady is out on $25,000 bail pending his hearing.

Charges resulted from a Dec. 31 incident that started with Grangeville Police dispatched to a report of an altercation at The Establishment on Main Street. Police contacted Canady, who allegedly had a .357-caliber Taurus model 66 pistol on his person. Partially loaded, the pistol matched the description of one stolen from a Grangeville resident on Dec. 15. Allegedly under the influence of alcohol, Canady reportedly resisted officer commands investigating the report and his subsequent processing into custody.

Canady was charged with unlawful possession due to a 2012 felony conviction in Inverness County, Fla., for burglary of an unoccupied structure unarmed.

Officers Mike Quintal, Paul Orgish, and Chief Morgan Drew handled the incident.
