While searching the area, Deputy Michael Huber found a white GMC pick-up truck nearby parked in the middle of Fifth Street Loop. The vehicle contained a case with six guns inside. Massey said the vehicle and weapons were seized.
Later that day, the Logan County Sheriff's Office received another call of a man wearing camouflage clothing banging on the door of a house on South Kalamazoo Road just outside of Paris. The Sheriff's Office and Paris Police Department responded to the call and upon arrival found Dwayne Keenan, 33, of Paris, at the house.

On Thursday, January 31, the Paris Police Department was notified about a man sleeping in a dumpster at the Dollar Tree who appeared to be carrying a gun. Paris Police Chief John O'Brien stopped the man down the street near the Dollar General.
