Milford Police Make Arrest In August Police Chase

Milford Police have arrested a New Jersey man following an investigation into an August police pursuit, according to  Sgt. Robert Masten.

Masten said on August 30, 2018, an officer from the Milford Police Department’s K9 Unit attempted to stop a Hyundai Accent for a registration violation on Rehoboth Boulevard.

The vehicle failed to stop for the officer and a pursuit ensued that led the officer through the east side of Lincoln, according to Masten.

The officer discontinued the pursuit at that time, but further investigation led to a warrant being obtained for Amir M. McMorris, 19 of Mays Landing, NJ, after he was identified as the operator, said Masten.

On Thursday, October 25, 2018, McMorris was taken into custody by the Delaware Capitol Police and later turned over to the Milford Police Department. He been charged with Disregarding a Police Officer Signal, Terroristic Threatening, Hindering Prosecution, Operation of an Unregistered Motor Vehicle, Failure to Stop At a Stop Sign, and Unsafe Passing on the Left. Mr. McMorris was presented at the Justice of the Peace Court#2, where bail was set at $4003.00 secured.

McMorris was committed to the custody of the Delaware Department of Correction at the Sussex Correctional Institution. He is scheduled to appear at the Sussex County Court of Common Pleas in November.
