Troopers: Home Burglary Suspect Who Pushed Woman Released On Unsecured Bond


Dover- The Delaware State Police have arrested 34-year-old Jermaine M. Snead for burglary and related charges, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Melissa Jaffe.

Jaffe said the incident occurred on February 19, 2020, at approximately 1:36 p.m., when Troopers were dispatched to a residence in the 1900 block of Generals Way in Dover, for a report of a burglary in progress. Upon arrival, contact was made with a 57-year-old woman who advised that while she was in her residence with her 22-year-old daughter, and 2-year-old grandson, a subject unknown to her had walked inside her home uninvited.

The subject, later identified as Snead, grabbed the 22-year-old woman, causing her alarm, according to Jaffe. The 57-year-old female was continuously asking Snead to leave her residence when he pushed her out of the way. All three occupants were able to exit the residence unharmed.

Troopers located Snead, who was found to be intoxicated and still inside the residence upon their arrival. Snead initially resisted arrest and was subsequently taken into custody. He was transported back to Troop 3 where he was charged with the following:

Burglary Second Degree
Resisting Arrest
Offensive Touching (2 counts)
Snead was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court and released on $11200.00 unsecured bond.
