A Sunday afternoon traffic stop led to two arrests after it was learned the vehicle was stolen and there was a handgun inside. At approximately 1:23PM, Dover Police stopped a 2003 Mazda Protege for a traffic violation (fictitious tags). As the officer ran the VIN of the vehicle, it was learned that it was stolen out of Milford, DE. Both driver (Kevin Woods, 29) and passenger (Dontrelle Shields, 22) were taken into custody without incident. A search of the vehicle led to the discovery of a .380 handgun underneath of the passenger seat where Shields was seated.
