Douglas -- A Coffee County man is arrested for possession of firearms by a convicted felon.
Douglas police raided the Fountain Inn and Suites last week looking for Shaun Sharma, one of the co-owners.
Sharma was not there, but the search turned up six guns, including high-powered rifles and handguns. Sharma surrendered to Douglas police Friday.
Sharma was convicted in Texas in 1999 for sexual assault, and Georgia law prohibits convicted felons from possessing firearms.
