Woman arrested for carjacking in Dover

Ryadae Jones

The Dover Police Department says it has charged a 26-year-old woman with carjacking and other offenses after an incident from Sunday afternoon.

According to the report, around 4:50PM, a 65-year-old woman was sitting in a parked vehicle in the area of East Loockerman Street and Federal Street when Ryadae Jones got in the car.

Jones was caught a short time later by responding officers without incident.

As a result of this incident, Jones was committed to Baylor Women’s Correctional Center in default of $61,100 secured bond on the following charges:

  • Carjacking 1st degree
