Historic City News was informed that detectives with the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office identified three teens, and arrested two, during a weapons investigation in Nocatee early Tuesday morning.
Deputies responded to the Waldon Chase Subdivision at 3:45 a.m. to investigate the report of people knocking on windows in the neighborhood.
A silver Hyundai was observed driving through the neighborhood without its headlights on. As it pulled into a driveway on Hanover Lane, several occupants fled from the vehicle.
Deputy Jonas Carballosa approached the vehicle and observed three handguns together with approximately 100 grams of Marijuana in plain view inside the vehicle.
While investigating, deputies heard what sounded like gunshots in the area; and, on further investigation, they located several spent shell casings near the Waldon Chase entrance.
