MCPD: 21-Year-Old Man Charged with Gun Possession and Auto Theft in Montgomery County

Per MCPD: A 21-year-old Berwyn Heights, MD man is facing multiple weapons charges after being arrested for possession of a stolen vehicle. On Saturday, February 11, at approximately 6:05 p.m., a Montgomery County Department of Police 3rd District patrol officer identified a stolen vehicle traveling southbound on Columbia Pike at Tech Road.  The officer radioed for assistance and once back-up arrived, attempted to make a traffic stop.

The driver of the 2009 Kia Spectra, later identified as Shaquan Demetrius Evans, fled southbound on RT 29 and became stuck in traffic at a red light on SB New Hampshire Ave. at Schindler Drive.   Evans attempted to drive between the stopped vehicles hitting two cars, causing minor damage.  The occupants in the two vehicles did not sustain any injuries. Evans bailed out of the Kia and ran into a nearby residential neighborhood.  Another 3D officer found Evans hiding in a back yard. Evans again ran, with officers following. After a brief chase, officers apprehended Evans a few houses away in the 10800 block of New Hampshire Ave. K9 officers located a Glock 29 10mm handgun in the backyard where Evans was hiding.

Evans was taken into custody and transported to the Montgomery County Central Processing Unit. He has been charged with possession of a loaded handgun, illegal possession of a handgun, unlawful taking of a motor vehicle, handgun in a vehicle, and other related charges.
