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.

  5. Manhattan Casino choice causes political headache for Kriseman


    ST. PETERSBURG — Days before the mayoral primary, Mayor Rick Kriseman's decision to let a Floribbean restaurant open in Midtown's historic Manhattan Casino has caused political angst within the voting bloc he can least afford to lose: the black community.

    Last week Mayor Rick Kriseman chose a Floribbean restaurant concept to fill Midtown's historic Manhattan Casino. But that decision, made days before next week's mayoral primary, has turned into a political headache for the mayor. Many residents want to see the building's next tenant better reflect its cultural significance in the black community. [JAMES BORCHUCK   |   Times]
