Columbia Man Arrested for Firearms Violations

A Columbia man was arrested Tuesday and later charged with numerous firearms violations. The Columbia Police Department reports arresting 38-year-old Wayne Lamont Warmack for unlawful possession of a firearm and two misdemeanor traffic warrants. The Criminal Investigations Division executed a search warrant on Warmack’s apartment in the 800 block of Claudell Lane following his arrest and found three additional firearms, two of them reported as stolen. Warmack is not permitted to possess firearms because he is a convicted felon. As a result, three additional charges of unlawful possession of a firearm were added as well as two counts of stealing a firearm. Warmack is also listed as a person of interest in the shooting of three people on September 18th of last year. He has not been charged and that investigation is ongoing.
