DSP searching for wanted Hartly man

1280 Floyd Smith

HARTLY, Del. – Delaware State Police are asking for the public’s help in locating a man who reportedly fled from troopers Sunday night.

At around 10:15 p.m., troopers responded to a residence in the 2000 block of Judith Road after it was reported that a wanted suspect, identified as 33-year-old Floyd Smith, was at the home. Smith had two active warrants for his arrest, including a warrant for violation of probation and a second for felony theft. When troopers arrived at the scene, they found Smith sitting in a running Ford Fusion with the doors locked.

Police say Smith refused to get out of the vehicle and instead began reversing out of the driveway, despite the fact that four troopers were standing close to his car. Smith then hit a State Polie vehicle with his car before driving through the yard and fleeing from the area at a high rate of speed.

Neither Smith nor his vehicle were located, and his whereabouts are unknown. He is approximately 5’7″, approximately 200 pounds, with green eyes and brown hair. He has a script tattoo on his right hand that says “Lost” and a script tattoo on his left hand that says “soul”, along with tattoos on both of his arms. Police say he is known to frequent the Denton, Hartly, and Felton areas.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact Sergeant H. Pepper at 302-697-4454 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
