On Sunday, September 29, 2019, officers from the Burlington Township Police Department arrested Daniel Walker (21 year old male from Amherst, VA) for unlawful possession of an assault firearm as well as unlawful possession of a handgun.

Walker’s arrest was the result of a motor vehicle stop that began at 3:54 AM on a silver 2004 Nissan Frontier pickup truck, on Route 541 in the area of Weichert Realty.
