Paul E. Daisey

DOVER — A 38-year-old Frankford man was arrested Monday following investigation into alleged poaching activities, DNREC Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police said.

Police cited multiple alleged deer poaching violations and a felony criminal charge, following reports of an incident on Railway Road near Milville.

Paul E. Daisey was charged with hunting deer during a closed season, hunting at nighttime, carrying an unlawfully loaded firearm in a vehicle, failure to check an antlerless deer within 24 hours, possessing or transporting an unlawfully killed antlerless deer, and felony intimidation of a witness.

Mr. Daisey was arraigned at Sussex County Justice of the Peace Court 3, where he was released on an unsecured bond pending a future appearance in the Court of Common Pleas.

Officers sought additional information on this case, which can be provided by contacting Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police Senior Cpl. Oran White at 855-1921. Information received that leads to a conviction for a wildlife violation could result in a cash reward under DNREC’s Operation Game Theft program.

DNREC said citizens can report wildlife violations to Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police by calling 739-4580.
