SAVANNAH, GA ( October 2, 2011)
A barricaded suspect is taken into custody after a brief search.
Just before 9 a.m., officers responded to the 400 Block of Carolan street after receiving a call of a
suspicious vehicle.
As the officers approached the vehicle they observed two black males in the vehicle, both men had pistols in
their lap’s and were asleep.
The officers cautiously attempted to wake the men. As soon as the men woke up, they fled in the vehicle,
for a short distance, then both men jumped out and ran. One suspect was not
apprehended. The other suspect ran into an occupied home. The
residents immediately ran out.
A search was conducted of the vehicle. it was determined to be stolen out of Central
Precinct. No guns were found in the vehicle so police determined the suspect could still have the weapon with
him.
SWAT was called out to search for the suspect. Laron ALLEN, 24, was eventually located and taken into custody
without incident in an apartment near the one he originally entered. He had climbed into the attic and gained entry into the adjacent apartment.
ALLEN was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, obstruction by fleeing, and
theft by receiving stolen property.
