Weapon Investigation Leads to Collision and Arrest

Scott


January 25, 2018 - On Wednesday January 24, 2018 at approximately 4:00 p.m., members of the Newark Police Department Street Crimes Unit were conducting surveillance in the area of Todd Estates, Newark. Officers assigned to that unit had obtained an arrest warrant for Shane Scott, charging him with one count of Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited.


 


While conducting surveillance, Scott was located in a Ford F150 pickup truck at the McDonald’s restaurant at the corner of Route 4 and Harmony Road. An officer in an unmarked police vehicle pulled up behind Scott with his emergency lights activated, as several other officers converged on foot toward the vehicle.


 


Scott immediately fled in the vehicle, driving over a grass embankment, a sidewalk and then a curb onto westbound Route 4 at a high rate of speed. As Scott approached Route 4 and Prides Crossing, he recklessly maneuvered the vehicle over another curb and a pedestrian island, losing control of the vehicle, where he then struck a 2002 Toyota Solara. The F150 flipped several times and came to rest on its roof in a grass median.


 


Scott was able to exit the vehicle and flee on foot towards the Allendale Apartments. Other responding Newark officers apprehended Scott on Rustic Drive in Brookbend. A search of the area of the F150 at the collision scene revealed a loaded 9mm handgun and a quantity of marijuana.


 


A 63-year-old female was driving the Toyota Solara. She was removed by ambulance to Christiana Hospital for possible minor injuries.
