LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - Lowndes County sheriff's deputies arrested a couple of men who hid in a mobile home trying to avoid law enforcement.

Sheriff's Captain Archie Williams said they showed up at a home on Black Creek Road Wednesday afternoon with a warrant for Corey Mixon but Mixon barricaded himself inside the home and would not come outside. 

According to Williams, his deputies were about to use tear gas to force Mixon out, but they discovered he went through the floor of the home to get under it.

Mixon eventually came out and was arrested.

Deputies also found Scotty Cook there and said he was trying to hide from them as well since he had a warrant for his arrest.

Both are charged with possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.
