Felton, DE- The Delaware State Police are asking the public’s assistance in attempting to locate a Felton man wanted for various felonious crimes that were committed in Kent County.

On Wednesday, August 24, 2016, members of the Delaware State Police Kent County Drug Unit with the assistance of the Harrington Police Department conducted an investigation after receiving information that Robert D.

Jones is currently wanted for Drug Dealing, Heroin Possession in a Tier 5 Quantity, Tampering with Evidence, Conspiracy 2nd Degree, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Resisting Arrest, Disregarding a Police Officers Signal, Driving While Suspended/Revoked, Failure to Stop on Command and multiple traffic charges.
