The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office has arrested 26 year old Michael David McCann of Westminster on charges of; Grand Larceny >$2000<$10000, Felony Possession of a Firearm, and Driving Under Suspension 1st Offense.

On October 16th, 2019, the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office received a complaint that a vehicle had been stolen from a Seneca residence the day prior. The complainant advised deputies that she did not provide consent for the vehicle to be taken from her residence.

On October 17th, a Sheriff’s Office Deputy was in routine patrol, when he noticed the vehicle that had been reported stolen. He conducted a traffic stop and Michael David McCann was encountered. The deputy asked McCann to provide his license and registration, but McCann was unable to do so. He advised the deputy that his license was suspended and that the vehicle belonged to a friend of his. At this point in time McCann was placed in investigative detention due to the vehicle being stolen and McCann failing to have a valid license. A 22 caliber revolver was discovered in the drive- side door panel of the vehicle. McCann is unable to possess a firearm, due to being a convicted felon. The owner of the vehicle was contacted and wished to press charges on McCann.

Michael David McCann was placed under arrest and transported to the Oconee County Detention Center, where he is currently being held. McCann has been charged with; Grand Larceny >$2000<$10000, Felony Possession of a Firearm, and Driving Under Suspension 1st Offense.
