Officials: Man On The Run Since 2018 Shooting Incident Gets 18 Months

A Seaford man wanted in connection to a November 2018 shooting will serve a year and a half in prison.

Teron West, 33, was scooped up while police were investigating illegal drug activity in Bridgeville in July 2019. When members of the Delaware State Police Sussex County Governor’s Task Force executed a search warrant at a home in the 200 block of Main Street they found West, who provided them with a false name. They also discovered large quantities of drugs, including more than 50 grams of cocaine.

Once properly identified, officers learned West had been on the run since the previous November, according to prosecutors. Officials said during the November incident, West fired several shots at the vehicle of a man he was fighting with on Park Drive in Seaford.

West, barred from having a gun because of prior felony drug convictions, pleaded guilty to Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited, Drug Dealing, and Criminal Impersonation.

On Friday prosecutors announced that a Superior Court judge sentenced West to 18 months in prison, followed by 6 months of either home confinement or work release, then 1 year of probation.
