HARRINGTON, Del. – Harrington Police arrested a New York woman after she reportedly failed to stop during an attempted traffic stop late last week.

At around 2:40 a.m. Friday, officers on patrol observed a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed on South DuPont Highway in the area of Corn Crib Road. The officer attempted to pull over the vehicle, at which point the officer noticed there was not a registration plate visible.

The vehicle did not stop and continued driving northbound on South DuPont Highway. Delaware State Police deployed stop sticks in the area of Paradise Alley Road, ultimately disabling the vehicle and causing the vehicle to come to a stop.
