Traymere Stevens is wanted for drug dealing, resisting arrest, and other drug related offenses.
A spokesman for the Delaware State Police said the division’s Kent County Drug Unit is looking for a man who was allegedly getting ready to make a drug transaction.
The suspect, whom Master Cpl. Gary Fournier identified as Traymere E. Stevens, 20, of Magnolia, escaped capture.
The situation began around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 10 in the parking lot of the Dover Mall, Fournier said. Troopers were preparing to arrest Stevens for delivering a large amount of heroin when he spotted the officers and instead ran into the nearby Macys store. Stevens then ran through the mall toward the JC Penney store, and disappeared.
Troopers assigned to KDU, Kent County Governor’s Task Force, and the Special Operations Response Team chased Stevens and continued to search the businesses with additional assistance from Dover Police Department and various police K9 units.
Police called off the search around 10 p.m. without finding Stevens, but seized the heroin he allegedly was delivering. There were no reported injuries, Fournier said.
Stevens is a black man standing 5 feet 7 inches tall weighing 140 pounds. He has black hair, brown eyes and last was seen wearing a blue T-shirt and shorts.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Troop 3 at 302-697-4454.
