Blake Marquese Pugh, 31 of Calhoun, was jailed in Rome this week after reports said he removed a gun from an active crime scene back in May.

Reports stated that Pugh is accused of attempting to prevent the apprehension of a criminal by taking a firearm and suspected contraband from a crime scene in which one subject was left dead. 

Authorities went on to say that Pugh, a convicted felon, was not allowed to have a firearm in his possession.

He is charged with tampering with evidence and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
