Raynham Police Arrest Man with Multiple Guns in Stolen Vehicle
RAYNHAM — Chief James Donovan reports that the Raynham Police Department arrested a man Wednesday morning, who had multiple firearms in his possession inside a stolen vehicle.
KYLE DAMON, AGE 22, OF RAYNHAM was charged with:
- Possession of a large capacity firearm
- Carrying a firearm without a license (two counts)
- Carrying a firearm while intoxicated
- Receiving stolen property over $250 (three counts)
- Carrying ammunition without a license
- Warrant arrest (three counts)
On Wednesday, at approximately 4:46 a.m., Raynham Police received a report of a man who was possibly in a stolen vehicle in the parking lot of the King Philip apartment complex.
Upon arrival, officers found a man, later identified as DAMON, sitting inside a Chevy Trailblazer that had been reported stolen on Monday, Dec. 11 out of Taunton.
Officers had reason to believe that DAMON may have had multiple stolen firearms in his possession and moved quickly to remove him from the vehicle and place him in handcuffs.
DAMON was highly intoxicated and received minor cuts and scrapes to his face when he was detained on the ground.
In searching DAMON, officers found a loaded Remington 1911 handgun inside a holster on his right hip. They also found a small folding knife tucked into his boot.
Inside the Trailblazer, officers located a fully locked and loaded AR-15 rifle in the front passenger’s seat, along with a large knife. Both items were within reaching distance of DAMON.
DAMON was placed under arrest. After complaining about chest pains, he was brought to Morton Hospital for evaluation. He will be arraigned after he is released from the hospital.
The guns were seized and the vehicle was recovered and towed to the police station for further investigation.
“This was a great job by our officers of quickly assessing the situation, especially not knowing how Mr. Damon would react when they came upon him,” Chief Donovan said. “Thankfully we were able to apprehend the suspect without incident and take two illegally possessed firearms off the streets.”
These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.
