Harrisburg man first to face new anti-violence program

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A Harrisburg man is the first person to be arrested for a firearms violation since the start of a new anti-violence initiative in Dauphin County.

Jerron Lewis, 21, is not permitted to have a gun, but officers found one in his vehicle after he crashed in the 2600 block of Agate Street on Monday, the day the program began, city police said.

Lewis tried to flee when officers arrived, but was taken into custody a short time later, police said.

He was also charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and traffic violations.

Lewis was given $100,000 bail at his arraignment and was sent to Dauphin County Prison.

Under the $100K Illegal Gun Project, police officers and prosecutors ask judges to set bail at a minimum of $100,000 for felons who are prohibited from carrying a firearm, and for anyone carrying a firearm concealed on their person or in their vehicle without a license.

If a juvenile age 15 or older is illegally carrying a firearm, police and prosecutors will ask the courts to detain the youth at a juvenile detention facility.
