Police: Dover Men Conspire Using Online Market Place App

On December 16, 2018, the Milford Police Department’s Patrol Division responded to the 600 block of North DuPont Boulevard (US Rt 113) following an incident that occurred during a transaction using an online market place app, LetGo, according to Detective Timothy Maloney.

Maloney said the investigation revealed the victim and the suspect(s) arranged to meet at a business parking lot in the 600 block of North DuPont Boulevard to complete a purchase through the LetGo app. During the transaction, the suspect(s) and the victim exchanged the item and the money. The suspect(s) then took the item back and fled the scene in their vehicle, placing both victims in danger, Maloney said.

The suspect(s) was unable to be located and identified at that time. Through investigative measures, the Dover Police Department were able to identify the suspects in this case. Jahkeim Barnaby, 20 of Dover, Stefan E. Rush-Wilson, 21 of Dover, and a juvenile suspect were identified as being involved, according to Maloney.

On March 10, 2019. Jahkeim Barnaby was taken into custody by Cheswold Police Department and later turned over to Milford Police. He was charged with two counts of Reckless Endangering Second Degree, Theft, and Conspiracy 3rd degree. He was released by Justice of the Peace Court #7 on his own recognizance. The juvenile was also charged in relation to this investigation in January 2019, according to Maloney.

Stefan E. Rush-Wilson, 21 of Dover, is still being sought by police.
