Presented by Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Gary Fournier

Rehoboth Beach – Bradley A. Brown, 23 of Seaford, has been located and taken into custody after he fled from police.

Brown was originally listed as a Gold Alert on June 15, 2017 after he made statements of harming himself to friends via text messages.  At the time, he was also wanted out of Sussex Superior Court for Offensive Touching and Providing Alcohol to a Minor.  On Saturday July 29, 2017 at approximately 10:15 p.m., troopers were dispatched to the Wawa located at 35436 Wolfe Neck Road for a reported shoplifting.  A description was given by store employees and the subject, who was later identified as Bradley Brown, was taken into custody in the parking lot of a nearby liquor store.  Brown initially resisted arrest by failing to allow troopers to handcuff him, but was eventually subdued and placed in the rear of a patrol vehicle.  While continuing to investigate the shoplifting, the trooper stepped out of the patrol car to contact witnesses when Brown somehow defeated the safety divider window and crawled into the front driver’s seat before exiting and fleeing the area.

On Sunday July 30, 2017 at approximately 2:45 p.m., an anonymous tipster contacted Troop 7 and provided information on where Bradley Brown was currently located and his current clothing description.  Troopers, along with the assistance of Rehoboth Police Department, responded to the Forgotten Mile Ale House, located at 20859 Coastal Highway, Rehoboth, and began to set up a perimeter around the business in case Brown decided to exit through one of the doors.  As troopers entered the establishment, Brown saw them and began running toward the kitchen area and then exit the rear door prior to it becoming secured by officers.  Troopers and officers gave chase southbound through some neighborhoods until he was eventually tasered by a trooper and placed in custody after a brief struggle.

Bradley Brown was transported back to Troop 7 in Lewes where he was charged with two counts of Resisting Arrest, Escape 3rd, Theft, and Shoplifting.  He was arraigned at JP3 on these charges as well as the two charges out of Superior Court and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $4,000.00 secured bond.

A History within a History – The Role of the Delaware State Police at the Delaware State Fair

170724_DSP_State_Fair_DJC_008

Presented by the Director of Public Information Sergeant Richard D. Bratz

Just before the roaring 1920’s, local residents in Delaware began engaging in the idea of creating a fair for the State’s residents.  Those early discussions blossomed into larger group meetings which ultimately led to the Kent and Sussex Fair in 1920.  The first state fair opened on July 27th, 1920 and has transformed into what we know today as the Delaware State Fair. The State Fair, since its inception, has served as the perfect meeting spot each year for families and friends to come together to enjoy the local agriculture and experience good quality entertainment.

As the State Fair began to expand in those early years the ever growing popularity of the automobile also ‘gave birth’ to the Delaware State Highway Police which, just a few short years later, became the Delaware State Police.  It didn’t take long for the organizers of the State Fair and the leadership of the Delaware State Police to realize that a presence of uniformed State Troopers at the State Fair simply made sense on many levels.  As a result, uniformed members of the Delaware State Police have provided site security to the visitors of the State Fair since the early days of the Fair, dating as far back as 1937.

In those early years, a handful of State Troopers, some employing K-9 partners, were assigned to the fairgrounds during portions of the State Fair. Over the years the world has changed and The Delaware State Police’s role at the Fair has changed with it. That change, is evident in the growth of the physical size of the fairgrounds, the increase in the volume of attendees and the many advances in technology surrounding all aspects of fair which has resulted in many adaptations to both the State Fair operations and the State Police response to those changes.

Present day, several dozen State Troopers, building upon the legacy of generations of Troopers that came before them, provide around the clock coverage of the State Fair for the entire duration of the Fair. The State Police’s function at the Fair is very dynamic and multifaceted. Troopers from across the state come together from different specialized units to proudly serve each guest at the fair through a variety of approaches to include the long-standing deployment of State Police K-9’s to provide physical security, the utilization of the State Police Mounted Unit to provide enhanced patrol coverage of the fairgrounds, the use of a state of the art Command Post operation to enhance communications, the utilization of State Police Explorers to assist lost children and the employment of a variety of plain clothes Troopers to include members of the Governor’s Task Force and the Sex Offender Apprehension and Registration Unit to further enhance the operations of all uniformed personnel.

Although, the many advancements in policing and the variety of specialty services provided today, the longstanding backbone of the State Police Fair Detail has been the proud women and men in uniform that walk and ride the fairgrounds around the clock creating a safe environment for all visitors and employees of the Delaware State Fair.  These Troopers, whose permanent assignments range from Troop #1 Penny Hill to Troop #5 Bridgeville, provide coverage on the fairgrounds every July and tirelessly work to ensure that the visitors of the State Fair can do so both safely and securely.

In addition to providing security at the Fair, the assigned Troopers also welcome the opportunity to engage in meaningful encounters with the numerous State Fair employees, vendors and visitors to the fairgrounds.  The State Police’s ability to conduct informal outreach to citizens during the Fair provides invaluable opportunities to enhance trust throughout the community and foster strong relationships with the people we serve.

So as the Delaware State Police continually strive to provide a safe and enjoyable environment each year for the children, women and men that visit the exciting and fun venue of the State Fair’s 300 acres of rides, vendors and exhibitions, our hope is that those attendees realize that we are there for their protection and to provide them with compassionate and professional police services.  Through our dedicated service, and help from first responders and private security personnel at the Fair, we hope to secure an environment where Delaware families can come together to create lifelong memories for many years to come!

Lewes– A Milford woman has been charged with felony theft after an investigation revealed she stole more than $27,000.00 from a local booster club.

Stephanie L. Trimmer, 42 of Milford, was arrested and charged with one count of Theft over $1,500.00 (Felony) on Thursday July 27, 2017 after detectives were alerted to money being missing.  On June 1, 2017, officials with the Cape Henlopen School District informed detectives that the boys high school lacrosse boosters account had a negative balance and should have contained several thousands of dollars.  Stephanie Trimmer, who was the President of the booster club, was the only person since 2016 to have full access to this account.

Troopers Arrest Two Men Following a String of Armed Robberies

Presented by Public Information Officer Master Corporal Jeffrey R. Hale

Newark- Delaware State Police Robbery Unit detectives have arrested two men and charged them in connection with a series of armed robberies which they had committed beginning in April.

The investigation began on April 22, 2017, after troopers responded to the robbery of the Metro PCS located at 2907 Concord Pike, Wilmington. In the robbery a male suspect entered the business and demanded money and cell phones from a store employee. After the employee complied with the suspect’s demands, he exited the store and fled in an unknown direction.

On May 6, 2017, troopers responded to the armed robbery of the Metro PCS located at 107 Maryland Avenue, Wilmington. They also responded to the armed robbery of the 7-11 located at 1700 Pulaski Highway, Bear, on May 21, 2017. In both incidents, a male suspect matching the description of the suspect who committed the April 22 robbery of the Metro PCS, entered the targeted business and displayed a handgun. He then demanded and received property consisting of cash, cigarettes, and cell phones, before fleeing from the stores.

During the investigation into the three robberies, detectives were able to review surveillance footage as well as examine physical evidence which enabled them to develop Courtney D. Jones, 31, of Newark, and Anwar I. Hackett, 28, of Wilmington, as suspects. A search warrant was then executed at the residence of Courtney Jones at which time evidence linking him to the robberies was located. It was later determined that Courtney Jones drove Anwar Hackett to each robbery and would then wait in the vehicle as Hackett committed the robberies.

On Tuesday July 25, 2017, troopers took Courtney Jones into custody without incident. He was subsequently charged by detectives with 3 counts of Robbery 1st Degree, Robbery 2nd Degree, 2 counts of Conspiracy 2nd Degree, Conspiracy 1st degree, Carrying a Concealed Deadly Weapon, Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited, and Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Felony.
