Upper Darby and East Lansdowne Police are on the lookout for a Delco dad who fled from authorities, leaving his young daughter holding his drugs, according to the Delaware County Daily Times.
Police say that 40-year-old Antwine Bulter ditched his 13-year-old daughter holding more than 50 bags of crack and bags of marijuana, among other paraphernalia, as police approached their Clinton Road home Tuesday, reports the Daily Times.
Butler, who was wanted for an alleged pistol-whipping in East Lansdowne on Sunday, ran out the backdoor.
“Before Butler ran out the door, he told his daughter to get rid of the drugs. She grabbed everything up from the couch and put them in a bag,” Officer Stephen Oreskovich told the paper.
Police were visiting the home with a search warrant and to serve an arrest warrant regarding Sunday’s incident.
While searching the home, officials say that Butler called the house and spoke to police, agreeing, more than once, to return to the house, reports the Times.
He failed to do so – and hasn’t been seen since.
Bulter is facing multiple charges in both Upper Darby and East Lansdowne. They include carrying a gun without a license, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, drug dealing and endangering the welfare of a child, according to the paper.
Anyone with information on the suspect’s whereabouts is urged to call 911. He is being considered armed and dangerous.
