Dover Police have arrested a local fugitive, identified as Traymere Stevens, 17, after he allegedly fled from officers.
The incident took place at approximately 9:45 p.m. Saturday, said police spokesman Capt. Tim Stump.
Police spotted Stevens in a vehicle traveling in the Courtney Square area and tried to stop it, but the driver fled, Stump said. Stevens jumped out of the vehicle in the area of South Queen and Reed streets while carrying a book bag, which he dropped as he ran.
Stevens was caught after a short chase and the book bag was recovered, Stump said.
The book bag was found to contain two loaded handguns, one of which had been reported stolen. A search of the vehicle turned up 46.7 grams of marijuana in the area where Stevens had been seated.
Stevens, of the 300 block of Cider Run, Magnolia, was charged with two counts of possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, two counts of possession of ammunition by a person prohibited, two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, resisting arrest, receiving a stolen firearm, possession with intent to deliver marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was committed to the William Marion Stevenson House Detention Center, Milford, in default of a $706,000 cash bond.
