An arrest warrant was issued Oct. 13 for a Muldrow man accused of being in possession of a firearm after a former felony conviction.
Donald Gene Allen, 53, faces up to 10 years in prison on the felony charge. His bond was set at $10,000.
Around 9 a.m. on Oct. 3, a Sequoyah County Sheriff’s deputy was dispatched to a residence in reference to a man with a gun. When the deputy arrived at the scene he was met by Rita Peterson, who told him she had walked outside to let her dog out that morning and said her brother, Allen, was standing in her yard with a rifle in hand.
Peterson said Allen walked up to her while pointing the gun at her, then smiled and walked past her into the residence and turned on the coffee pot. The woman said Allen then left the residence and went back to a residence next door. Peterson said she was scared for her life.
Later, Allen admitted walking to his sister’s yard with a gun but said he never pointed it at anyone. He said he has had problems with people and animals breaking into his shop building so he took the gun, a Remington .22-caliber semi-automatic rifle. Allen told police where they could find the gun and admitted to being a felon out of Arkansas.
