Three arrested on gun, drug charges in Dover

DOVER, Del. – Three men are facing charges in Delaware after police say they found drugs and guns.

Dover Police say on Tuesday, they saw 19-year-old Shaquan Shields leave the New Hope Apartments and get into a car. When officers stopped the car, they say they saw over 50 grams of marijuana in plain view next to Shields. We’re told he was taken into custody, and found to be in possession of a loaded handgun and 21 bags of heroin.

Then, around 3:50 in the afternoon, police say they tried to contact 19-year-old Devon Randall on South New Street after he was seen with a gun. When police approached him, they say Randall fled into the building of a nearby apartment. That’s when police say they found a loaded handgun in the path that he fled from officers.

After applying for a search warrant for the apartment, officers say they took Randall, and 19-year-old Zyaier Payne into custody. During the search, officers say they found another handgun, and over 87 grams of marijuana.

All three men are now facing charges.
