900 block South Whitney Way


A handgun was recovered from a van following a traffic stop on South Whitney Way Friday night. The driver was being pulled over for speeding. The van stopped in a parking lot, but those inside did not wait to talk with police. The driver and five passengers fled on foot: most appeared to be males in their late teens. They were not caught. The van's owner was located, and she said she had loaned the vehicle to a family member.
