A convicted felon is back in jail for charges of unlawful possession of a firearm after an incident Friday night described as a police standoff.

Mark Trotter, of Hannibal, is being held in the Marion County Jail on a $50,000 cash-only bond.

An initial call came in the 9 p.m. hour of July 7 regarding a domestic disturbance at a residence on Choctaw in Hannibal. According to a probable cause statement filed in the case, police were aware of the residence from previous calls.

As police arrived on scene, a neighbor relayed that Trotter was allegedly involved in a domestic disturbance with his wife.

Police and mental health workers attempted to make contact with Trotter and his wife at the home, but did not receive responses.

Marion County Prosecuting Attorney David Clayton signed a search warrant at 9:30 p.m. and officers made entry into the home, taking Trotter into custody. Trotter's wife indicated a firearm was in the home. Because of previous felony convictions, Trotter is not permitted by law to own a firearm.

Additional allegations include that Trotter violated an ex parte violation and that he held his wife against her will. Trotter is being held on the firearm charge until further charges can be filed, if necessary.
