Two arrested after pursuit, car crashes into house

SEAFORD — The Delaware State Police arrested two fugitives who were wanted on criminal charges.

Police spokesman Sgt. Richard Bratz said that at 9:53 p.m. Saturday, the Wicomico, Md., County Sherriff’s Department attempted a traffic stop. The suspect vehicle, a 2006 Saturn, failed to stop at command and fled. The vehicle entered into Delmar, Delaware and the Delmar Police Department initiated a pursuit. Troopers set up a perimeter on multiple county roadways.

Sgt. Bratz said troopers were prepared to utilize stop sticks on Baker Mill Road (CR 583) and Church Street (SR 20A). The vehicle had turned from Fleetwood Pond Road (CR 484) right onto Baker Mill Road (CR 483) and continued southbound on Baker Mill Road at a high rate of speed, then ran over the stop sticks and the front and rear driver’s side tires were deflated as a result.

William Brown

Police said the suspects ran through two stop signs on Baker Mill Road and Church Street and continued westbound on SR 20 and crashed into an unoccupied residence on Concord Road east of Haven Drive.

Upon arrival to the crash scene, the driver and front passenger were still sitting in the vehicle, which had struck a series of fences and then the corner of the residence. The vehicle contained possible stolen property from a department store in Salisbury. Both suspects were transported the Nanticoke Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The driver, Jaimere L. Wayman, 24 of Dover, and the passenger William Brown, 19 of Harrington, were charged with fugitive from another state with the driver cited with multiple traffic charges. They were committed to the Delaware Department of Correction.
