HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A Hattiesburg man is behind bars facing felony drug charges and an aggravated assault charge.

Lance Langton, 36, was arrested Friday afternoon at the Hardy and 40th Avenue intersection in the Hub City.

"The original call came in as a suspect in a black automobile at The Grand Bank on Westover, and the driver left the scene," Hattiesburg Police Lt. Jon Traxler said.

Traxler said the vehicle was later stopped off 40th Avenue, and that is where Langton's car was searched and police recovered numerous guns and drugs.

Langton was charged with aggravated assault, as well as five counts of felony drug charges for possession.

He is currently booked at the Forrest County Jail.
