A stop of a suspicious car at a gas station turned into a lengthy manhunt Saturday night.

The incident started at a gas station near Sutterville Road and S Land Park Drive just before 9 p.m. An officer noticed two people standing outside a car.

Police say that one of the people tried reaching into the car, but an officer was able to stop him. That man then ran, with police having to set up a perimeter to try and find him.

Inside the car, which police found to be stolen, was a loaded handgun. Meth and a rifle were also found.

The man, 33-year-old Edward Sample, was eventually found hiding in a front yard. He tried running once he was discovered, but a police K-9 was able to subdue him.

Another person, 27-year-old Desiree Davis, was arrested at the original scene. Both Sample and Davis now faces multiple charges stemming from the incident.

    I live in that neighborhood on Warren ave. My fiance called me, let me know that the neighborhood was sealed off, cops were everywhere, and that K9 units were out. I spend the next several hours locked in the house with the alarm on, lights on, with a can of CS gas/pepper spray, and a stun gun handy. We didn’t sleep much that night.

    We will be getting a shotgun for home protection after last night, as with taking courses on how to properly use it.
