Harrington man indicted on 33 counts in alleged home invasion

DOVER — A Harrington man was indicted this week on 33 counts for an alleged home invasion on Oct. 14 and conclusion of a two month drug investigation that brought his arrest shortly afterward, according to police reports and court documents.

Antonio D. Bynum, 23 at the time, was taken into custody without incident by Dover and Delaware State Police on Oct. 16 during a residential narcotics search warrant execution in the Meadowbrook Acres neighborhood, authorities said. He was also sought after a shooting incident at the Dover Inn that left a 23-year-old man seriously wounded, city police said at the time. Authorities did not believe the incident was a random act.

Charges following the Dover Inn investigation included multiple counts of first-degree robbery, first-degree attempted robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, first-degree assault, aggravated menacing, first-degree reckless endangering and second-degree conspiracy.

Three drug dealing counts resulted from the Meadowbrook Acres search warrant, along with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and single charges of possession of firearm or ammunition by person prohibited and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police said approximately 2.5 grams of cocaine, .32 grams of crack cocaine and about eight Oxycodone pills were found at the residents, along with .40 caliber handgun ammunition and over $900 in suspected drug proceeds.

Upon apprehension, Mr. Bynum was held at Sussex Correctional Institution in Georgetown on a combined $855,000 in cash bonds for both cases.
