  • Kenneth Alston, 20, of Trenton, was arrested on Jan. 21, 2022, and charged with weapon offenses and resisting arrest following a motor vehicle stop that turned into a foot pursuit. Alston was allegedly found with a .45 handgun with a laser sight and ammunition.

  • Parrish Whitmore, 28, of Trenton, was arrested on Feb. 2, 2022, and charged with weapons offenses after Street Crimes Detectives responded to the area of the 600 block of MLK Blvd on information of an armed individual.

  • Bayshawn Tift, 37, Tyshiek Shaw, 31, and Teresa Sutphin, 58, of Trenton, were arrested on Feb. 10, 2022, and charged with drug offenses. The Director’s office received numerous complaints for the apartment complex at 39-43 Hermitage Avenue regarding trespassing, various quality of life offenses and rampant drug distribution and use.

Following one of Tift's sales, mobile arrests teams conducted a motor vehicle stop and arrested the buyer Sutphin, who was found in possession of crack cocaine.
  • Donald Robinson-White, 33, of Trenton, was arrested on Feb. 18, 2022, and charged weapon offenses after detectives allegedly observed him discarding a handgun while fleeing law enforcement.
