Dover man arrested in multi-vehicle theft

Green Cary THARTLY, Del.  – Delaware State Police arrested a Dover man Friday morning after he reportedly stole two vehicles, one of which belonged to a police officer.

We’re told it happened around 7 a.m., when police received reports that a 2016 Chevrolet Traverse had been stolen from a woman’s driveway on Judith Road. As troopers responded to the call, a Clayton Police Officer spotted the car traveling on Wheatleys Pond Road.

Cary Green, who was driving the stolen Chevrolet, drove off the road and into a field where he left the vehicle and began to run. Green then led police on a brief foot chase until a Kenton Police Officer arrived to assist.

As the two officers were standing next to the Clayton Police vehicle, Green, still handcuffed, reportedly climbed into the driver’s seat and drove off.

A short time later, a citizen reported seeing a male with handcuffs walking the 200 block of Seeneytown Road. Troopers responded to that area, locating Green and taking him into custody without further incident.

The Kenton Police Department vehicle was found abandoned near the 500 block of Seeneytown Road.

Green was then taken back to Troop 3 in Camden where he faces multiple charges. He was issued a $15,001.00 cash bond.
