Deputy Attorney General Matt Frawley secured a guilty plea from Joshua Chattin, 23, of Wilmington for Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony, Drug Dealing Heroin Tier 4, Conspiracy Second Degree, and Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited. In October 2015, a probation officer doing a home visit at Chattin’s apartment found heroin, marijuana, and several firearms, including two loaded 9 mm handguns, a .45 caliber handgun, and a revolver that fires .410-gauge shotgun shells. Chattin faces 14 to 67 years in prison when sentenced in Superior Court later this year.

Deputy Attorney General John Taylor secured a guilty plea from Jameel L. Anderson, 35, of Wilmington for Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited. In April 2016, police were called to the 100 block of East 24th Street for reports of a man with a gun. When officers arrived, they found Anderson arguing with another man. Officers searched Anderson, and found a loaded .25 caliber handgun in his jacket pocket. Anderson is prohibited from having a gun because of a prior violent felony conviction. Anderson faces three years in prison when sentenced in Superior Court.

A Wilmington man will serve three years in prison followed by one year on probation for drugs and a weapon. Deputy Attorney General John Taylor secured a guilty plea from Jabar Fields, 32, for Drug Dealing and Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony. In July 2016, Wilmington Police made a traffic stop in the 900 block of Clifford Brown Walk, after the driver repeatedly disregarded the officers’ attempts to pull him over. An officer approaching the car noticed a gun partially under the front seat of the car. A further search of Fields and the car turned up cocaine, Xanax, and Oxycodone. Fields was immediately sentenced by Judge Eric Davis.
