SEAFORD — A loaded handgun, ammunition, marijuana and suspected heroin were found in a vehicle after police responded to a suspicious activity report Friday, Seaford Police spokesman Master Cpl. Eric Chambers said.

Myles Andrews, 18, of Seaford, and Deshawn Reed, 24, of Laurel, were seen in a vehicle parked in a fire lane at Meadowbridge Apartments and an odor of marijuana was detected, authorities said. Police said Mr. Andrews fled on foot but was apprehended after a brief struggle. Mr. Reed was taken into custody without incident.

Mr. Andrews and Mr. Reed were both charged with possession of a firearm or ammunition by person prohibited and multiple drug charges, along with second-degree conspiracy.
