Traffic stop leads to man being charged with 3 felonies

A Washburn man was arrested recently after a Barry County Sheriff's Deputy allegedly found guns and meth in the man's vehicle after a traffic stop.

Trevis Sizemore, 46, of Washburn, is charged with two counts of unlawful possession of a firearm and one count of possession of a controlled substance.

According to a probable cause statement filed by Deputy Justin "Dave" Ruark, at about 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Sizemore was stopped for a traffic violation on Farm Road 2200 and Highway 37 near Cassville.

Sizemore allegedly had a 10-22 Ruger rifle and and .45 Colt Caliber Ruger Blackhawk pistol, both loaded.

A previously convicted felon, Sizemore allegedly knew it was illegal for him to possess the firearms.

Ruark also allegedly found a clear plastic baggie with a white substance that tested positive for methamphetamine, which was located on the ground close to where Sizemore was standing.

Sizemore is being held in the Barry County jail on a cash-only bond of $30,000. He was arraigned on Tuesday.
