Savannah Police have arrested an 18-year-old who had a murder warrant out of Jasper County. 

Police were in the area of 32nd and Dieter streets gathering evidence on Wednesday when they conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle. The driver of the vehicle, Tyreek Lester, was identified as the suspect with the murder warrant.
