Harrington police arrest Milford teen after vehicle chase

HARRINGTON – A 16-year-old Milford teen was arrested in Harrington Sunday after he fled from Harrington Police in a vehicle.

According to police, the juvenile was allegedly traveling 70 MPH in a 45 MPH zone and later traveling in excess of 95 MPH in a 50 MPH zone when they attempted to stop the vehicle along South DuPont Highway at 11:45 p.m.

The driver then fled and led officers in a pursuit through Harrington. As the vehicle continued to flee through several streets within town, the driver committed numerous traffic violations.

Officers were able to block in the suspect’s vehicle while on Wolcott St. in the area of Dorman St., causing the vehicle to stop and the suspect and the suspect to flee the vehicle on foot.  After a short pursuit on foot, the juvenile was taken into custody.  While searching the vehicle, police located a black BB gun that the juvenile had concealed in the seat.

The juvenile was transported back to the Harrington Police Department for processing.  The juvenile was charged with over 40 charges including resisting arrest, driving without a license, aggressive driving, carrying a concealed deadly instrument and numerous other traffic violations.  The juvenile was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 7 and was released to the custody of his mother pending a future court appearance in Kent County Family Court.
