BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -  A man is behind bars in Decatur county after investigators said he reached for a gun while officers arrested him. 

LaDonta Milline, 23, is charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, obstruction, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. 

Officers said Milline tried to hide drugs when investigators entered a home on Broughton street Monday.

During his arrest, officers found a gun in his pocket that is believed to be stolen. 

Investigator Chip Nix with Bainbridge Public Safety said, “Well, that's one less guy and one less gun that we have to worry about. We're taking other steps like running ATF trace and that kind of stuff to trace the gun back to who it belonged to.”

They recovered a Smith & Wesson M&P Bodyguard 380.

If you believe the gun is yours, call Bainbridge Public Safety at 229-248-2038 with a serial number.
