Delaware State Police have arrested a Kent County couple after the husband, a wanted fugitive, was spotted at the pair’s home.
The arrests were made at approximately 9:45 p.m. Oct. 31, by the Governor’s Task Force with the assistance of the State Police Special Operations Response Team, who executed a search warrant at the home of Robert J. and Jennifer A. Graham, 42, both of the 600 block of Dinah’s Corner Road, near Dover.
Police set up surveillance after it was learned Robert Graham, 41, was at the home, said division spokesman Master Cpl. Gary Fournier. Graham was wanted for two counts of resisting arrest along with five capiases out of local courts, one of them being a failure to appear for trial in superior court to answer to charges of possession of a firearm by a person prohibited and resisting arrest and another for violation of probation.
SORT members waited until Jennifer Graham left the home, then broke through the front door after getting no response from Robert Graham, who was known to be inside. He was found in a rear bathroom and taken into custody without incident.
Jennifer Graham was arrested when she returned home, Fournier said.
Robert Graham was charged with three counts of resisting arrest, and ordered held at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center, Smyrna, after failing to pay a $58,000 secured bond.
Jennifer Graham was charged with felony hindering prosecution because troopers had contacted her on Sept. 21 and Oct. 24 about her husband’s whereabouts and she had failed to contact authorities to report he was at the house.
She was released on a $2,500 unsecured bond after her arraignment at Justice of the Peace Court 7, Dover.
