Teen charged in Dover home invasion

DOVER — One juvenile was arrested and another suspect sought in connection with a home invasion in the unit block of Stevenson Drive on Sept. 4, Dover Police spokesman Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman said Friday.

Vaughn Hall, 14, was taken into custody on Thursday following a brief foot chase. He was seen in the area of White Oak Road at approximately 5:10 p.m. and found with a handgun in his pants, authorities said. A warrant for his arrest had been obtained earlier.

A search warrant followed at the youth’s Stevenson Drive home at approximately 6:48 p.m., and police said ammunition, a handgun magazine and drug paraphernalia were located.

Charges include home invasion, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, wearing a disguise during commission of felony, first-degree unlawful imprisonment, second-degree conspiracy, terroristic threatening, possession of firearm/ammunition by person prohibited (three counts), possession of firearm by juvenile, carry concealed deadly weapon, illegal gang participation, resisting arrest and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The Hall youth was held in custody on a $53,700 secured bond.
Police said a 49-year-old woman was in front of her residence last month at approximately 9:06 p.m. when two mask wearing, gun toting suspects allegedly approached. The woman was forced into the home and then inside a closet before she escaped out a window, police said.

Police said investigation was ongoing and asked anyone with information to call 736-7130. Callers may remain anonymous.
