On Sunday, October 4 New Castle County Police received a call from residents of the Scotch Hills community (Wilton) in New Castle for the report of several persons acting suspiciously in one of the stairwells of a building.

Officer First Class M. Donovan responded to the unit block of Highland Boulevard and made contact with two subjects who were sitting on the stairs. While speaking with the subjects, Officer Donovan noticed a strong odor of marijuana emanating from their clothing. A search was conducted and Officer Donovan located a loaded small caliber handgun (pictured below), a small amount of suspected marijuana, and just over $300.00 in cash in the pocket of a 16 year old male. The money was later seized as suspected drug sales proceeds.

The 16-year-old was charged with carrying a concealed deadly weapon, possession of a firearm by a person prohibited (juvenile), possession of marijuana and loitering. He was arraigned and later released on $12,200.00 unsecured bail.
