Hayes is charged with possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of tools for the commission of a crime and two counts of theft by receiving.

"There were two stolen firearms, and then of course he had a firearm and was a convicted felon. As far as the drugs, I can't give you an exact amount, it was quite a bit," Mangum added.
