Officers arrived to find Mangrum sitting near a loading dock of the post office property.

During the investigation, police located and searched a vehicle belonging to Mangrum for weapons, where they found three loaded magazines of ammunition.

A second vehicle registered to Mangrum was also located nearby, which contained a number of loaded firearms, police say.

Mangrum was taken into custody and booked into the Madison County Detention Center on state charges.

It’s not known yet whether Mangrum will face federal charges as a result of the incident.
