Alleged fitting-room sex incidents lead to 3 arrests on drug, conspiracy charges

DOVER — Investigation into a 23-year-old Dover man’s alleged sex acts in a fitting room eventually brought three arrests on drug and conspiracy charges, Dover Police said Friday.
Lewis Foreman entered not guilty pleas in connection with two supposed incidents at the Target store at 148 John Hunn Brown Road, according to a probable cause affidavit. Dover residents Keyarra Johnson, 29, and Tyra Mifflin, 20, were also arrested on charges as officers located Mr. Foreman near a unit block residence on Stevenson Drive in the Manchester Square neighborhood, authorities said.
According to police spokesman Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman the sequence began Jan. 19 when the store reported alleged lewdness by a man alone seen by a female customer in the fitting room with an open door. Police responded, but the suspect fled in a gold Jaguar with unreadable Delaware registration before their arrival at 11:03 a.m., authorities said.
Surveillance video identified Mr. Foreman as a person of interest, police said, and another supposed incident in the Target parking lot was reported Thursday at approximately 9:15 a.m. Officers then checked the Manchester Square neighborhood, where the believed the man might be staying.

Officers attempted to stop Mr. Foreman as he arrived in a gold Jaguar after a vehicle chase around 11 a.m. Police said he allegedly fled a short distance into a residence rear door before hiding in the attic with Ms. Mifflin. A three-year-old child — whose guardian was not identified in a news release or in court documents — was left unattended in a bedroom at that point, authorities said.
Mr. Foreman and Ms. Mifflin surrendered to police shortly afterward, authorities said. A search warrant execution by officers allegedly located 3,972.6 grams (approximately 8.75 pounds) of marijuana (in heat sealed bags), digital scales, packaging materials,and $4,432 in cash in the home, Cpl. Hoffman.
Ms. Johnson was taken into custody without incident as she arrived at the home. An officer initially found the child shortly after entering the residence, and the juvenile was placed in the care of a suspect’s family member.
The defendants were all charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana, possession of marijuana in a Tier 3 quantity, second-degree conspiracy, endangering the welfare of a child  and drug paraphernalia. Mr. Foreman was also charged with indecent exposure (two counts).
Mr. Foreman was released after posting cash bond at $10,500 Justice of the Peace Court 2 in Rehoboth Beach before Magistrate Scott Willey, documents said. Ms. Mifflin and Ms. Johnson were both released on $12,250 unsecured bond.
An arraignment for Mr. Foreman was scheduled for May 1.
