Sheriff's Major Anthony Lowery says jail workers on Monday
released 25-year-old Napoleon Peavy, who was later picked up in
Chickasaw after the mistake was discovered.
An investigation is under way to determine what prompted his release.
Court records show that Peavy is facing two federal charges of
transporting a weapon across state lines as a convicted felon.
