COLUMBIA — Police officers arrested a Columbia man Thursday night after he allegedly fired two shots on Elm Grove Drive in northeast Columbia.

Officers took Brock Griffith, 25, into custody after stopping him at 3009 Paris Road just before 9 p.m.

He faces multiple charges including:

  • Receiving stolen property
  • Resisting or interfering with arrest
  • Unlawful possession of a concealed firearm
  • Unlawful use of weapons
  • Use or possession of drug paraphernalia

Griffith has a previous felony charge for the production or possession of a controlled substance. This bars him from owning or using a firearm.

Officers also found digital scales in his pockets that are used commonly in measuring narcotics.

After the arrest, officers discovered the handgun Griffith possessed was reported missing in a 2009 Columbia Police Department case.

Griffith is currently being held on a $50,500 cash only bond.

Supervising editor is Emilie Stigliani.
