Man arrested, lockdown lifted at three Pasco schools

NEW PORT RICHEY — Authorities have taken a fugitive into custody, ending a standoff that led to the lockdown of three Pasco schools.

Students are now free to leave Gulf High, Gulf Middle and Schwettman Education Center, but their late dismissal has delayed school buses for a number of west Pasco schools.

Pasco deputies went to 6017 Arthur Ave. at 10:48 this morning on a tip that Stephan Darnell Fullman, 22, was at the home. Fullman was wanted on a warrant for charges of selling and possessing cocaine and failing to appear in court.

"Everyone in the house refused to come out," said Capt. Jeff Harrington, spokesman for the New Port Richey Police Department.

Because the house was in New Port Richey's jurisdiction, the Sheriff's Office called the agency's SWAT team to secure the residence. After getting a search warrant for the house, the SWAT team broke down the door just before 3 p.m. and arrested Fullman without incident, Harrington said.

Fullman is in the custody of the Pasco County Sheriff's Office and is being transported to the Land O'Lakes jail.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Chaim Bloom said the Rays weren't necessarily in the market for a shortstop. The team has a number of those. But when the Marlins recently began shopping Adeiny Hechavarria, well, that was too much to pass up.

    It's Andy's time.

    And it's about time.

    Former Lightning captain Dave Andreychuk has been elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame. He had been eligible since 2009, a ridiculously long wait for someone who scored 640 goals, including a record 274 on the power play.
