A 24-year-old man was arrested in Dayton Saturday morning on suspicion of an array of offenses, including trafficking in crack cocaine.

Alvin B. Abney Jr. was arrested for illegally possessing a firearm, carrying a concealed weapon, trafficking in drugs and possession of drugs. All were felonies.

Dayton police responded to the 3600 block of Karwin Drive around 9 a.m. after receiving reports of gunshots. Officers noted in a Dayton police report that upon arrival they could hear a male yelling inside the suspected residence.

Abney exited moments later, according to the report. Officers instructed Abney to put his hands in the air. According to the report, one officer noted, “I observed Abney raise a black object and then immediately place it into the box sitting on the trash can. I then yelled at Abney and ordered him to show his hands, at which time he did.”

A clear plastic bag was located on Abney, according to the report, that contained “numerous” pieces if suspected crack cocaine. Seven individual pieces were separately wrapped and appeared to be the same size packaged for sale, according to officers.

There was a larger unwrapped piece as well, along with a smaller unwrapped piece. The suspected drugs were tested at the scene, all of which tested positive and confirmed the suspicion of Abney’s possession of drugs, police said.

Abney reportedly told police he was on parole for aggravated burglary and aggravated robbery. He also stated the crack was his, but the gun was not.

About three grams of crack cocaine was found on Abney, according to police. Twelve live rounds were found in the gun’s magazine but none we chambered, according to police.

Abney is due in court Monday afternoon.
