      Search Continues for Muskogee Co. Suspect After Stolen Weapons Discovered

      A manhunt continues this week for a Muskogee County suspect accused of stealing weapons and hiding them at his residence.

      Multiple authorities have been searching for Clinton Mullins after a search warrant of his residence turned up stolen weapons, property and drugs. He was nowhere to be found when deputies with the Muskogee County Sheriff's Office performed the search.

      "Every kind of weapon you can imagine," Sheriff Charles Pearson told KTUL. "Weapons were positioned in such a way that they were easily in reach for [him to get]"

      Sheriff Pearson told KTUL that officers have narrowed the search for Mullin in an area located between Webbers Fall, Porum and Warner. Earlier this week deputies increased their search efforts after additional weapons were found in creek beds near Webbers Fall.

      Deputies received a tip that his family members have been helping elude officers. Mullins' mother, Donna Melton, and brother, Aaron Melton, were arrested on Tuesday on complaints of obstruction, interfering in an investigation and destruction of evidence.

      Officials are asking anyone with information about where Mullin could be locate to notify the MCSO or call 911. He is considered armed and dangerous.
