Narrative: 

The Dover Police Department arrested three juveniles after they fled from officers on a traffic stop.  Officers observed a red Kia Spectra in the area of S. Kirkwood Street and W. Division Street being driven without lights on.  Officers initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle.  As officers were about to approach, the vehicle sped off, running a stop sign on West Reed Street onto S. West Street.  The vehicle then ran a stop sign onto Forrest Street and sped down Lincoln Street.  Officers stopped following the vehicle, determining that the risk to the public and the officers was significant due to the roads being covered in ice and snow at the time.  A short time later, officers located the vehicle crashed into a snow bank in the 900 Block of Lincoln Street.  Jamar Stokes-Harris (13) was a passenger in the vehicle and was located across the street from the vehicle.  Officers then located Zyair Garner (16), and Terrence Mears (16) in a CVS store located nearby.  All three suspects were arrested without incident.  It was learned that Garner was the driver of the vehicle.  As officers checked the vehicle, they located several baggies with MDMA pills in plain sight.

As a result of the incident the suspects were charged as follows:

Zyair Garner (16), Camden-Wyoming, DE
