Dover Teen Charged with Weapons Offenses


A 15 year old Dover boy has been arrested after a trespassing complaint early Saturday morning. Dover Police were called just before 2am for a suspect going through a vehicle on Worchester Drive. Police located the suspect in the area of Thames and Trafalgar Drives, but the boy ran when police tried to contact him – and tossed a handgun from his jacket pocket as he ran. Police eventually arrested the teen and recovered a 9mm handgun in the area where he tossed it. The teen was also found in possession of a screwdriver and wrench and investigators learned that he was attempting to steal vehicles, but was not successful.

He was committed to Stevenson House on $12,600 cash bail on the following charges:

  • Possession of a Firearm by a Prohibited Person (2x)
  • Possession of Burglars Tools
  • Tampering with Physical Evidence
  • Possession of marijuana
  • Resisting Arrest
  • Trespassing Second Degree
