Incident #: 50-14-34369   Date: Thursday, December 18th, 2014 at 11:55PM

Location:  217 North Kirkwood Street (ELKS Lodge), Dover, DE


The Dover Police Department arrested a fugitive from New Castle County, late Thursday night.  Officers learned that 31-year-old Steven Roscoe, who was wanted on a Rule 9 warrant issued by New Castle County Superior Court, was at the Elks Lodge on North Kirkwood Street.  At that time several officers, including K9 “Spike” responded to the area, knowing that Roscoe had a history of fleeing from police.  Officers approached the Elks Club staff and asked them to have Roscoe step out, however Roscoe fled out the rear door of the building and ran from officers who gave chase.  K9 Spike gave chase after Roscoe jumped a privacy fence and ignored commands to stop by police.  K9 Spike was able to apprehend Roscoe and bring him to the ground, allowing officers to take Roscoe into custody without further incident.  A search of Roscoe after his arrest, led to the discovery of 1.9 grams of marijuana in his pants pocket.  Roscoe was charged with Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Resisting Arrest, and Local Fugitive (Rule 9 warrant).  He was committed to James T. Vaughn in lieu of $102,500 Secured Bond.
