  • Two Sussex County residents were arrested July 18 after nearly hitting a Harrington officer’s car near Fairgrounds Road.
    The driver of the vehicle, 29-year-old Stanley Mumford of Millsboro, was arrested after pulling out in front of an officer at about 1 a.m., and nearly hitting the officer’s car, said Harrington Police Department spokesman Lt. Earl Brode.
    Brode said Mumford initially provided the officer with a false name, but after a computer check, was positively identified and then arrested.
    Georgetown resident Katie R. Hynson, 28, was a passenger in the vehicle, and refused to cooperate with police while being questioned, Brode said. She also refused to provide police with Mumford’s identity and also was arrested.
    Officers also determined that Mumford was wanted by Sussex County Family Court and Sussex County Court of Common Pleas, as well as by Delaware State Police Troop 4 for charges stemming from a vehicle pursuit with troopers in February 2014.
    Mumford and Hynson were taken to the Harrington Police Department where Hynson was issued a criminal summons for hindering prosecution and released.
    Mumford was issued a criminal summons for criminal impersonation, driving with a suspended or revoked license, inattentive driving and failure to answer summons. Mumford was arraigned for the active warrants and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution in default of a $42,353 cash bond.
