GLEN BURNIE, Md. (WJZ)— Anne Arundel County police charge two Severn men with illegal possession of a firearm.

Just after 11:30 p.m. Monday, officers  stopped a Ford Taurus in the area of Bruton Drive and Southbridge Drive in Glen Burnie for a registration violation.

While investigating the expired and altered tags, Officer Jeffrey Rothenbecker and his K-9 partner Rocky arrived on scene and conducted a scan of the vehicle, obtaining a positive response for the odor of possible drugs in the vehicle.

Both occupants of the vehicle were then seated on a curb while officers began searching the vehicle. What they found was a loaded .38 caliber revolver in a jacket.

When the suspects became aware that officers located the handgun, 20-year-old passenger, Tevin Devereaux McMillian, jumped up and ran away.

The driver, 22-year-old Aaron Jamal Whitten, remained at the scene and was taken into custody while officers pursued the passenger on foot to the area of B&A Boulevard and Marley Meadow Lane toward Henson Road.

Rothenbecker then utilized Rocky to track McMillian, who was hiding in a backyard in the 100-block of Henson Road, where he was taken into custody without further incident.

Police say both suspects were prohibited from possessing regulated firearms and were charged accordingly.
