K-9 storm and Campbell patrol officers nab parolee armed with a gun

Posted: Updated:

CAMPBELL, Ohio- Campbell's K-9 Unit makes a felony arrest, after what began as a routine traffic stop.

On Saturday, Campbell Patrol Officer's Rob Vukovich and Eric Manning attempted to make a traffic stop, but the vehicle turned abruptly and led officers on a chase from Campbell into Youngstown and Kendis Circle.  That's where the suspect, 24-year-old Jermaine Beverly of Youngstown, abandoned his vehicle, and took off on foot.

Campbell Officers gave chase and say Beverly, who was just released from prison in June, ignored repeated police commands to stop.

The patrolmen warned the suspect they would release the police dog, but he allegedly continued to run.

That's when K-9 Storm gave chase, tackled the suspect and brought him down.  Holding on to his pant leg.

At that point, the suspect is accused of pulling out a loaded handgun and pointing it at the police dog.

The suspect put the weapon down when police surrounded him.

That's when Beverly who is currently on parole from prison on previous weapons convictions, was taken into custody.

He's charged with driving under suspension, carrying a concealed weapon, weapons under disability, obstructing official business, drug possession and drug paraphernalia.

Beverly's handgun was chambered and loaded with 15 rounds.

The suspect will appear in Campbell Court Tuesday morning at 9 a.m., and is currently in a holding cell at the Campbell Police Department.
