Jackson County Sheriff's Investigators arrested a Hurley man accused of stealing two handguns from a relative's home.

According to Jackson County Sheriff Mike Byrd, 23-year-old James Lee Whigham of the 22000 block of Hollyhock Drive is the man, who allegedly stole the guns.

On February 20, Whigham was arrested and charged with burglary of a dwelling offense. He was transported to the Jackson County Adult Detention Center.

He made his initial appearance in Jackson County Court on February 21. His bond was set at $7,500 by Judge T. Larry Wilson. Wilson revoked Whigham's prior bail for possession of a controlled substance.

The suspect will remain in the Jackson County Adult Detention Center until his first charge is resolved.
If convicted, he faces up to 25 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
