Douglas police make gun arrest

October 1, 2007

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.
