LAURNBURG — A pair of cousins have been arrested for disorderly conduct after police were called to what appeared to be a possible shooting Thursday.
Alonzo Jones, 18 of Fairfield Drive and Adayeus Jones, 18, of Second Street, were both arrested for resist delay and obstruct and disorderly conduct after they became uncooperative with officers who responded to Rob’s Convenience Store on Caledonia Road, according to Assistant Police Chief Terry Chavis.
“At 9:43 a.m. officers responded to the intersection of Caledonia Road and McKay Street reference a call about two black males chasing each other with a gun. Upon arrival Officer Jackson observed a male in the parking lot of Rob’s Convenience pointing a gun at a residence across the street towards a residence,” Chavis said.
The male, Alonzo Jones was detained in the back of a patrol car while officers investigated, and a BB gun was seized.
While officers were sorting out the situation a male, later identified as Adaiyus Jones, walked up and inserted himself into the situation, according to Chavis. Officers asked him to back up and he continued to come toward the area.
“He became disrespectful and replied that he was talking to the suspect’s mother,” Chavis said. “Officers continued to ask him to back up and he began using abusive language. Officers asked Jones several more times to back away.”
Adaiyus Jones was then detained and charged with resist delay and obstruct, disorderly conduct, and interfering with an investigation.
When police removed Alonzo Jones from the cruiser to question him about the incident, he became unruly as well.
“He began to yell that police had held him at gun point for no reason and that they knew he had a BB gun,” Chavis said.
He too refused to cooperate and was arrested for disorderly conduct and resist delay and obstruct.
Both men were taken to the Scotland County Detention Center and held under a $1,000 secured bond.
