By Bonnie Culverhouse

Proving teamwork pays off, Ward I City Marshal Dan Weaver and Minden Police have put another felon behind bars.

Tremindeus Jashun Miller, 29, of the 900 block of Carolina St., Minden, was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, theft of a firearm, simple burglary and active warrants for 4 counts of misdemeanor theft.

According to reports, police received a direct call from Weaver saying Miller was spotted on W.R. Reeder Street, and it was known the subject had active warrants.

“Off. Anthony Crittendon responded to the call where he and Marshal Weaver took Miller into custody,” said Minden Police Chief Jared McIver. “In his possession was a small amount of suspected marijuana in a clear plastic bag.”

MPD Det. Shane Griffith reportedly wanted Miller for theft of a firearm and felon in possession of a firearm.

“After Det. Griffith questioned Miller, officers went to the 500 block of Plateau Street where a Henry Golden Boy .22 was recovered,” said the chief. “Post Miranda, Miller admitted to taking the firearm and some tools from a complainant’s residence and then pawning the tools at a local pawn shot.”
