36-year-old David Paux was charged with possession of a firearm during a dangerous felony, possession of prohibited weapons, possession of burglary tools, possession of meth with intent, and four counts of burglary when he and another rode their bicycles to private property and attempted to break into storage containers.
On April 28th, Deputies Moncier, Hearn, Javins, Hankins and Brooks responded to a burglary call at 7144 Austin Peay Highway. The owner of the parcel had called to report two white males breaking into his three storage containers. Palmer Jackson had viewed this on his security cameras. According to the affidavit, after searching the area authorities found David Paux hiding under a trailer who told them his accomplice Adam had fled. The second male Adam was never located.
A search of Paux produced 0.9 grams of methamphetamine, brass knuckles, and an empty gun holster. Paux told officers that the holster was for a BB gun he had lost in the woods but a Kel-Tec Pistol was found in his hiding spot. A kit was also discovered containing flashlights, grinder blades, and grinder battery. Officers noted Paux admitted to cutting one lock with a Dewalt grinder that was never recovered. The perpetrators had arrived at the scene on red bicycles.
David Paux was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm during a dangerous felony, possession of prohibited weapons, possession of burglary tools, possession of meth with intent, and four counts of burglary. He was later released on his own recognizance.
