Providence Division - Suspects charged with multiple felonies


Tuesday, April 17, 2018

On April 13, 2018, at approximately 8:00 p.m.,  officers with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department's Providence Division conducted a traffic stop on a white Toyota Sienna in the 1000 block of McAlway Road.

​Upon approaching the vehicle, the officers smelled marijuana and observed a machete (see attached photo) in the van.  In addition, the driver, Marlon Keitrail Lomax, DOB: 3/15/1995, stated that he did not have a driver's license. All three occupants were instructed to exit the vehicle. The driver complied  and was detained without incident. The front passenger, Zsa'quan Deshawn Maurice Burris, DOB: 12/19/1997, initially refused to exit the van, and when he did so, he attempted to flee. He was apprehended after a brief foot chase, at which point he was found to be in possession of marijuana. The back seat passenger, Timothy Andrew Quintyne, DOB: 4/14/1983, refused to exit the Toyota, began reaching for the machete and yelling at the officers shoot him. The officers used a TASER to gain compliance and then took him into custody.

When the vehicle was searched, officers located 2 stolen handguns (see attached photos) under seats (both were stolen during vehicle break-ins that occurred in Charlotte last year, CMPD report numbers 20170412-205702 and 20170619-163401).  In addition, marijuana, digital scales, an open bottle of alcohol and $619 in cash were seized.

Burris was charged with Possession with Intent to Sell and Distribute Marijuana, Possession of Firearm by a Convicted Felon, Carrying a Concealed Weapon–Gun, Resist/Obstruct/Delay, Possession of a Stolen Firearm, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Lomax was charged with Driving While License Revoked, Carrying a Concealed Weapon – Gun, and Possession of a Stolen Firearm.

Because a Taser was used, Quintyne was transported to the hospital. Warrants have been obtained against him for Carrying a Concealed Weapon-Gun, Resist/Obstruct/Delay, Possssion of a Stolen Firearm, and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, and Open Container.  Once he has been released from the hospital the warrants will be served.

Additionally, Quintyne was arrested on April 11, 2018, on breaking and entering and damage to property charges (CMPD report number 20180410-192503). On April 12, 2018, he was shot in the leg (CMPD report number 20180412-202703).  That case is still under investigation; no arrests have been made.
