DOVER, Del.- A judge has issued a $100,000 bench warrant for a Dover man wanted for failing to show up in court to learn his fate in a weapons-related case.

Dover police said 23-year-old Trevor Jenkins was convicted by a Kent County Superior Court on Thursday on the charges of possession of a deadly weapon by person prohibited, possession of a firearm/ammunition by person prohibited and resisting arrest. However, Jenkins was not there to hear the jury's verdict as he failed to appear, according to police.

According to police, the jury's verdict stemmed from an incident that occurred on May 24, 2013. Police said officers were alerted to a possible conflict in the area of South New and South Queen streets. When monitoring the situation through surveillance cameras, officers saw Jenkins get out of a vehicle while allegedly tucking an object into his pocket. Another person who was with Jenkins then removed what police believed to be a firearm from the trunk of the vehicle, police said. When confronted, the suspects fled and were ultimately captured by pursuing police officers. Police said  Jenkins was found to have a revolver in his back pocket. According to authorities, Jenkins was prohibited from possessing firearms due to a felony conviction of second-degree robbery in 2008.

Anyone with information on Jenkins' whereabouts is asked to call the Dover Police Department at (302) 736-7111 or anonymously to Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-847-3333.
