Summary:

Operation Safe Streets detectives arrested Jamill White, Cory Williams, and Naki Gibson after locating a hidden compartment containing two stolen firearms.

On Wednesday afternoon at approximately 2:35 p.m., Safe Street detectives observed a maroon colored Chrysler 300 fail to use its turn signal while changing lanes on Northeast Boulevard. As detectives approached the vehicle they recognized the operator, Jamill White, from previous unlawful encounters. White was asked to roll down the heavily tinted rear windows so detectives could see if there were other occupants accompanying him. White complied and Safe Streets detectives, who are partnered with Probation and Parole, recognized the rear passenger, Cory Williams, as a probationer out of Pennsylvania. All occupants were removed from the vehicle and taken into custody without incident.

K-9 officer, Senior Corporal Johnny Whitehead, responded to the Public Safety Building to assist with the Safe Streets investigation. Senior Corporal Whitehead’s partner, Sarge, gave a positive indication of a controlled dangerous scent. Detectives executed a search warrant on the vehicle and located several wires and a battery box. Further investigation revealed that the top lip of the rear passenger seat pushed away from the rear deck revealing two firearms and ammunition. Detectives seized two 40 Caliber semi-automatic handguns, a box of ammunition, and a total of $3,956.00 among the three defendants.

The defendants arraignment information is unavailable.
