    MPD Capt. Dean Harper, commander of the department's Criminal Investigation Division, said Bryan L. Haynes, 27 of Meridian, was charged Wednesday with felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a stolen firearm and possession of more than an ounce of marijuana with intent to distribute. Haynes was placed on $25,000 bond on each of the charges.
