Staff WriterPolice & Fire, RSS

The Delaware State Police are searching for 36-year-old Miekel Grant of Wilmington, Delaware after he fled from troopers during a traffic stop early this morning.

On December 30, 2022, at approximately 1:21 a.m., a trooper on patrol observed a 2015 white Honda Accord parked behind the Superlodge motel and McDonald’s restaurant located at 3010 New Castle Avenue in New Castle. The trooper saw the operator of the Accord speaking with a female standing at the driver’s door. The trooper followed the Accord as it left the parking lot and noticed that it failed to properly stop for the posted stop sign at West Avenue. The trooper conducted a traffic stop on Memorial Drive and contacted the driver and only occupant, identified as Miekel Grant. The trooper detected signs of impairment with Grant and attempted to begin a DUI investigation. However, Grant fled from the traffic stop at a high rate of speed. Troopers began pursuing the Accord for a short time, but the pursuit was discontinued due to Grant’s reckless driving.

Troopers later located Grant’s vehicle on West 41st Street in Wilmington. The car was unoccupied, but a loaded Glock handgun was found inside. Attempts to contact or locate Grant were unsuccessful, and there is currently a felony warrant on file for Grant’s arrest stemming from this incident.

Anyone with information regarding Miekel Grant’s whereabouts is asked to contact Corporal Z. Drake at Delaware State Police Troop 2 by calling 302-834-2620, or by dialing 9-1-1. Information may also be provided by contacting Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333 or via the internet at
