Atlantic City Police Arrest Two With Weapons
Wednesday night, Atlantic City Police were dispatched to the area of New Jersey and Arctic Avenues in reference to a male running with a gun.
Two ACPD officers responded to the area and approached a group in the 100 block of New Jersey Avenue; as they were approaching the group, an officer observed one of the males in the group put a handgun into his waistband. The officers quickly took the male, later identified as Tremayne Brickhouse, into custody and recovered the handgun. As an officer was placing Brickhouse into a patrol vehicle, the group was yelling that a male leaving the area was also in possession of a weapon. The male, who was later identified as Terrell Anderson, began to flee on foot toward Connecticut Avenue. Several officers eventually caught-up to Anderson at the intersection of Connecticut and Arctic Avenues where he was placed in custody but he was not in possession of a weapon. Reports indicate the officers followed the only footprints in the snow which led to the discovery of a rifle in the rear of a nearby residence. Anderson was found to be in possession of narcotics and had outstanding warrants for his arrest.
Anderson has been charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, possession of a prohibited device (sawed off weapon), possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, aggravated assault, possession of a controlled dangerous substance (cocaine), and contempt. Brickhouse has been charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, possession of a prohibited device (hollow point bullets), and receiving stolen property. Both males remanded to the Atlantic County Justice Facility in Mays Landing.
