DOVER, Del. – A Dover man was arrested late Tuesday night on multiple charges following a trespassing complaint.

We’re told officers responded to the area of the Red Roof Inn and 7-11 in the 600 block of North DuPont Highway at around 10:20 p.m. Officers observed 22-year-old Kyle Batson inside of the 7-11 store and then walk to the parking lot of the Red Roof Inn.

Officers who were familiar with Batson reportedly found that he was wanted on a shoplifting charge from December of 2020. Contact was made with Batson, and during a search, officers found a loaded firearm on his person as well as drug paraphernalia.
