Dover Police search for wanted suspect

1280 Griffith New

DOVER, Del. – Dover Police are asking for the public’s help in locating a wanted suspect that fled from officers Monday afternoon.

We’re told officers stopped the suspect, identified as 25-year-old Eduardo Griffith, at around 3:40 p.m. in the area of William Street and Pear Street. Police say Griffith was wanted by Delaware State Police and Sussex County Superior Court.

Griffith reportedly failed to stop and led officers on a pursuit, eventually crossing into Maryland where he threw a firearm out of the window of the vehicle. Officers discontinued the pursuit as they approached the Chestertown, MD, area due to safety concerns and traffic congestion.

Police were able to recover the firearm that Griffith threw from the vehicle. Griffith is now wanted on two counts of possession of firearm/ammo by a person prohibited, second offense disregard police officer signal, tampering with physical evidence, resisting arrest, and multiple traffic violations.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact Dover PD at 302-736-7111 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
