A Columbus Junction man has been accused of driving while under the influence and possessing a firearm as a felon.

Kory Vedepo, 45, was charged March 14 with possession of drug paraphernalia, third-offense OWI, dominion of a firearm by a felon, unlawful possession of a prescription drug, interference with official acts, fifth-degree theft, and driving while barred.

According to the arrest affidavit, Vedepo stole over $16 worth of merchandise from a convenience store, including a bottle of liquor.

Vedepo was later stopped in his vehicle for a traffic violation. Officers found a pill bottle and a black case full of loose pills allegedly belonging to Vedepo but not prescribed to him.

Two long rifles and ammunition were found in the trunk of the vehicle. Vedepo allegedly resisted arrest, requiring officers to pull him into the back of the squad car.

Vedepo had been previously barred from driving for refusing an OWI test.

Dominion of a firearm by a felon is a Class-D felony.
