Officials: Man Leads Police On Chase in Stolen Cybertruck

Delaware State Police arrested 41-year-old Corey Cohee of Milford, Delaware, for stealing a Tesla Cybertruck from a residence in Lincoln yesterday morning.

Officials said on May 18, 2024, at approximately 8:10 a.m., troopers responded to a residence on Brick Granary Road in Lincoln for a report of a stolen vehicle. Upon arriving, troopers learned the victim’s 2024 silver Tesla Cybertruck with temporary New Jersey registration was stolen from his property by an unknown suspect. Troopers responded to the area where the victim’s Tesla was tracking and located the occupied truck on a dirt path off of Pinecone Drive. However, before troopers could approach the truck, it fled toward Pinecone Drive according to police. The Tesla disregarded all police signals and did not stop as it continued traveling on Pinecone Drive toward Brick Granary Road. After a brief pursuit, the Tesla came to a stop on Brick Granary Road, and the driver/sole occupant, identified as Corey Cohee, was taken into custody without incident.

Cohee was taken to Troop 7, where he was charged with Theft of a Motor Vehicle (Felony), Disregarding a Police Officer Signal (Felony), Criminal Trespass, and Failure to Have License in Possession.

He was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Court 3, and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on a $4,002 secured bond.
