Monday, Feb. 17, at approximately 12:55 a.m., Officer Jocelyn Trussell of the Pinehurst Police Department observed two black males walking in the 3200 block of Lancelot Street in Pinehurst.

Officer Trussell detained the subjects due to recent reports of criminal mischief by juveniles in the area. Upon conducting a “pat-down” search of each person for weapons, Officer Trussell found them each to be in possession of a loaded handgun.

Devin Michael Gray, 17 years of age, and Kevondric Fezia, 18 years of age, both of Orange were arrested for unlawfully carrying a weapon. Gray was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

If convicted on the weapons charge, both men could face up to one year in jail and a $4000 fine.
