French Quarter Foot Chase Leads to Guns, Drugs, and Arrests
NOPD officers chased down a pair of men who fled a traffic stop Friday night in the French Quarter, and found guns and drugs in their car. According to police, Officer Brett Mathes saw 20-year-old Trey Mitchell run a stop sign near the corner of Bourbon and Bienville, and pulled the car over. Mitchell and the car's passenger, Damien Abrams, bolted from the car, leading police on a foot chase, but were apprehended by Mathes and other officers in the area.
Police found a loaded semi-automatic handgun, which was later found to be stolen from Houma, and a blue steel rifle tucked between the driver's seat and the center console. A bag containing 24 pieces of crack was also in the driver's side door handle. Police also found marijuana on one of the car's front seats, and boxes of ammunition in the car's trunk.
“This is an example of what a simple traffic stop can lead to," NOPD Chief Ronal Serpas said in a statement. "Two men with loaded guns and crack who were driving around on a Friday night in the French Quarter- right alongside locals and tourists- are now off the streets because an NOPD officer was focused, doing his job, and caught them running a stop sign."
