Police Arrest Man Following Vehicle Pursuit

New Castle County Police have arrested 23-year-old Jamere Roberts following a vehicle pursuit.

(New Castle, Del. – 19720) Early today at about 12:45a.m., A-Squad officers were conducting proactive patrol in the area of Churchmans Rd when they observed a grey Toyota Tundra stopped at a red light at the Christiana Rd intersection. Officers conducted a computerized registration check and found that the truck was stolen.  Officers attempted to stop the vehicle by activating their lights and sirens, but the driver, later identified as Jamere Roberts, did not comply.  Jamere Roberts continued to flee and eventually turned into a parking lot on Pulaski Highway.  In the parking lot, Jamere Roberts turned the vehicle around and struck two police vehicles before coming to a stop.  Officers ordered Jamere Roberts out of the stopped vehicle, but he again did not comply.  Officers were forced to break out the driver’s window and remove Jamere Roberts from the vehicle.  He was taken into custody without further incident.

Jamere Roberts was charged with felony receiving stolen property, felony criminal mischief, felony resisting arrest, disregarding a police officer’s signal to stop, four counts of second-degree reckless endangering, misdemeanor criminal mischief, driving without a valid license, failure to stop at a red light, and driving at an unreasonable speed.  He was arraigned and committed to Young Correctional Institution after failing to post $6,150 secured bail.
