WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Wilmington police say a man who fled a traffic stop hid loaded guns and ammunition at a youth cottage while fleeing.

The News Journal of Wilmington (https://delonline.us/1fh282b ) reports that 30-year-old Jonathan Hall drove away from a traffic stop Saturday night and crashed his vehicle.

Sgt. Phil Young says he saw Hall run from his vehicle carrying two large bags, which were gone by the time he was caught.

Later, police say they found the two bags, filled with three loaded handguns and about 600 rounds of ammunition, on the property of the state-run Snowden Cottage, a behavior-rehabilitation center for juveniles.

Hall faces numerous charges, including firearm possession by a prohibited person, stemming from a prior felony reckless endangerment conviction. It was not immediately clear if Hall has hired an attorney.
