Final suspect in Dover home invasion robbery arrested

DOVER — All three suspects in a Dover home invasion in January have now been arrested with the last taken into custody Monday following a traffic stop, Delaware State Police said.

On Jan. 24, troopers responded to the report of a home invasion around 9 p.m. on the 1300 block of South Little Creek Road.

According to police, a 35-year-old victim said he’d made an agreement over the phone to meet a female to purchase an iPhone. They met at a nearby parking lot where the female entered the victim’s car to discuss the purchase.

Upon reaching an agreement, the victim noted that his money was back at his home so the two drove to his house, said police.

When he exited his vehicle, the victim was approached by two men holding firearms and demanding money. He was then forced into his home. After ransacking the victim’s home and repeatedly demanding money, the suspects stole several items and fled the scene.

After an investigation, the suspects were identified as 23-year-old Arshawon Brown of Harrington, 21-year-old Tianna Scott of Harrington and 22-year-old Treyon Craig of Harrington, said state police.

Scott was taken into custody on March 13 while at the Court of Common Pleas on an unrelated matter. She was transported back to Troop 3 where she was charged robbery and conspiracy.

She was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court and released after posting $22,000 secured bond.

Brown was taken into custody on March 30 by the Middletown Police Department. He was charged with home invasion, robbery, unlawful imprisonment, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, conspiracy, wearing a disguise during the commission of a felony and malicious interference with emergency communications.

He was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court and committed to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $189,250 secured bond.

Craig, the last of the alleged robbery trio, was taken into custody on Monday after a traffic stop.

He was transported back to Troop 3 where he was charged with the same charges as Brown.

Craig was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court and committed to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $193,000 cash only bond.
