Firearms charges

await convicted felons

Lawrence police arrested two Topeka men early Monday in downtown Lawrence on weapons violations charges.

Michael Ray Vann, 19, and Alexander Bolden, 24, on Monday were both in Douglas County Jail on charges related to being convicted felons in possession of firearms.

Lawrence police officers on patrol at 12:55 a.m. Monday were flagged down by someone who had seen two men with guns in a car in a parking lot near 10th and Massachusetts, said Police Lt. Kevin Harmon.

Harmon said that when the patrol officers checked out the men in the car, they found two handguns in their possession.

Because both men had felony convictions in their pasts, they are not allowed to have weapons. Harmon said he didn't know what the prior felonies were.
