Marydel/Felton- The Delaware State Police have arrested two suspects following a shots fired complaint.

The incident occurred on Saturday, September 15, 2018, at approximately 1:17 p.m., when Troopers were dispatched to the 300 block of Grygo Road in Marydel for a shots fired complaint, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Melissa Jaffe.

Jaffe said upon arrival, Troopers learned that Anthony Jones, 44 of Smyrna, had responded to the residence looking for his ex-girlfriend who was not there at the time. Prior to leaving the residence, Jones had discharged a firearm that he was carrying, striking the exterior of the house, according to Jaffe. Jones then fled the scene in a Honda Civic, added Jaffe.

Troopers located the vehicle at the intersection of Holly Spring Road and Willow Grove Road, where a traffic stop was initiated. Contact was made with three occupants in the vehicle, the driver, Angela D. Greenwood, 43, of Clayton, Anthony Jones, who was a front seat passenger, and a 39-year-old male from Marydel who was a rear seat passenger. All three occupants were detained without incident.

Jaffe said a search of the vehicle led to the discovery of the following:

a loaded .45 caliber handgun with six rounds in the magazine
a box containing (40) .45 auto rounds
approximately 1.79 grams of crack cocaine
drug paraphernalia

Further investigation revealed that the suspects had responded to a second residence in the 600 block of Equitation Lane, Felton, where Jones was again looking for his ex-girlfriend, who was not there either. Prior to leaving this residence, the suspects slashed all four tires and smashed out all of the windows to a vehicle that was parked in the driveway, according to Jaffe.
