Delaware State Police have arrested Alton Jones, 71, of Seaford, DE, Daveon Showell, 18, and a 16-year-old juvenile male both of Bridgeville, DE, in connection with a stolen motor vehicle after a traffic stop Saturday morning.

On February 4, 2023, at approximately 9:15 a.m., a trooper on patrol in the area of Coverdale Road and Mill Park Drive, Bridgeville, observed a silver Dodge Grand Caravan with Delaware registration traveling southbound on Coverdale Road. A computer inquiry revealed the Dodge was reported stolen by the Milford Police Department. A traffic stop was initiated, and troopers took the operator, Alton Jones, and two occupants, Daveon Showell and the juvenile male into custody without incident. A subsequent search of the vehicle led to the discovery of approximately .03 grams of crack cocaine, drug paraphernalia, and a pair of nunchucks. Jones and Showell are both convicted felons and prohibited from possessing weapons.
