TRENTON, N.J. (PBN) On Wednesday, February 8, 2023 approximately 1:00 pm, Trenton Police Department was advised of an adult student who was in possession of a firearm, while attending school at 400 Chambers Street, Trenton Central High School. Upon further investigation, the male was identified as Breion Crayton. School Officials immediately instituted a shelter-in-place to isolate and locate Crayton. School Resource Officer, Detective Munn located Crayton and a struggle ensued. Crayton was able to break free during a struggle for his book bag, which contained a handgun and escaped custody. Trenton Police Officers searched the immediate area and a possible address for Crayton and were not able to locate him at this time.

Arrest warrants for weapon offenses were issued for Crayton and the Trenton Police Department is actively attempting to locate and arrest him at this time.

In a instagram story video of Crayton he could be seen pulling a handgun with a drum magazine attached to it with a green laser from his hip flashing the firearm.

If anyone has any further information on Crayton’s whereabouts contact myself [Det. Lt. Nathan B. Bolognini] or SRT Detective Sergeant David Ordille @ 609-433-7450.


Crayton should be considered armed and dangerous. If you observe him do not approach or attempt to detain him, please instead contact the Trenton Police Department at 609-989-4000 and/or 911.
