Staff WriterPolice & Fire, RSS

Yesterday the Delaware State Police arrested 18-year-old Tyion George of New Castle, Delaware and two other teenagers after they were found to be in possession of a stolen car.

On February 9, 2023, at approximately 5:07 a.m., a 39-year-old Wilmington woman parked her white 2023 Kia Sportage rental car at the Wawa located at 400 Wilson Road in Wilmington. While the woman was inside of the store, a black 2020 GMC Terrain circled the parking lot and then stopped. A male passenger from the Terrain exited the SUV, walked over to the Kia, got into the driver’s seat, and drove away from the area. Troopers responded to the scene but were unable to locate either the GMC Terrain or the stolen Kia. Later in the morning at approximately 11:15 a.m., officers from the New Castle County Police Department located the GMC parked next to the stolen Kia on Freedom Trail in New Castle. The GMC was occupied by Tyion George and two male teenagers, ages 17 and 16. The ignition keys for the Kia were found under the driver’s seat of the GMC.

George and the two teens were taken to Troop 2, where they were each charged with the following crimes:

  • Receiving Stolen Property Over $1,500 (Felony)
  • Conspiracy Second Degree (Felony)

George was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Court 2 and released on $4,000 unsecured bond.

The 17-year-old and 16-year-old were both arraigned by Justice of the Peace Court 11, and both teens were committed to the New Castle County Detention Center on $4,000 cash bond.
