Fugitive Arrested AT Dover Hotel Wednesday Afternoon


On March 10th, the Dover Police Department Special Operations Team learned that a wanted fugitive was staying at the Dover Garden Suites. Donald Miller,37, was wanted by Wilmington Police Department for charges related to a burglary and for fleeing from police, according to Dover Police Department Public Information Office
Sergeant Mark Hoffman.

Miller was also wanted by New Castle County Police on firearms and vehicle theft charges in addition to multiple court capias in Delaware, said Hoffman.

The Dover Police and Delaware State Police Special Operations Teams and the Dover Police Department Crisis Negotiation Team responded to the hotel and established communications with Miller and two occupants of Miller’s room which included a 17-year-old male who was wanted on a capias, and a female subject. After nearly two hours of negotiations, the three occupants surrendered to police by exiting the hotel room individually.

It is not known if any of the three subjects will face new charges at this time, Hoffman added.
