NDSP arrests two men with guns near campus

| Friday, June 1, 2018

Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) arrested two men in possession of “two loaded handguns” near campus Wednesday evening, the University announced in a press release Friday.

Troyon Scott, 18, and his brother Troyae, 20, both South Bend residents, were arrested while driving a silver Pontiac G6 that matched the description of an automobile involved in a previous incident, the release said. The two were charged with possession of weapons and possession of marijuana. Troyon Scott was also charged for driving a vehicle without a license.

The handguns, which were Glock 19 and Glock 45 semi-automatic pistols, were found under the car seats and had “fully-loaded magazines of 17 rounds and 10 rounds, respectively,” the release said.

Officer Jim Buchmann of NDSP led the arrest in response to a report he heard while monitoring the South Bend Police Department’s radio traffic, the release said. A woman had called the police to report a vehicle stopped on a bridge on Angela Boulevard.

“The passer-by tapped on the driver’s side window, prompting the driver to speed away, eastbound toward the Notre Dame campus,” the release said. “The vehicle passed Buchmann at Angela Boulevard and Notre Dame Avenue, changing lanes near Eddy Street without a turn signal being employed.”

Buchmann apprehended the Scotts near Edison Road and Harrington Drive with the help of Officer Tim Reiter and Lt. Andre Bridges. The brothers were taken to NDSP headquarters in Hammes Mowbray Hall “without incident” and were subsequently taken into custody by the South Bend Police Strategic Focus Unit, the release said.

An investigation by local and federal police is ongoing.
