News Release

Delaware State Police arrested 38-year-old Joey Finney of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, for multiple felony offenses following a pursuit yesterday near Felton.

On July 9, 2024, at approximately 5:30 p.m. members of the Kent County Governor’s Task Force were on patrol on South Dupont Highway near Felton when they saw a black GMC Yukon driven by Joey Finney. Detectives recognized Finney from previous investigations, and knew he had active warrants for his arrest, which a computer check confirmed. Detectives attempted to pull the Yukon over in the parking lot of Royal Farms, located at 11460 South Dupont Highway but it sped away. During the pursuit, detectives saw Finney throw an object out of the Yukon while driving in a reckless manner on several Felton area streets and roads. The Yukon eventually came to a stop in the parking lot of Uncle Willie’s on Reeves Crossing Road after detectives successfully deployed stop sticks. Detectives found a cigarette pack that was thrown from the Yukon and discovered that it contained approximately 5.06 grams of powder cocaine and approximately .07 grams of heroin.

Finney was arrested and taken to Troop 3, where he was charged with the crimes listed below, arraigned by Justice of the Peace Court 2, and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on a $18,900 cash bond.
