SMYRNA, Del.- Delaware State Police say two people are facing charges after they led troopers on multiple pursuits throughout Kent and New Castle counties.

According to investigators, on Thursday night, June 5, members of the Kent County Governor's Task Force were patrolling the Smyrna area searching for 27-year-old Aaron O. Lowman of Dover. Police said Lowman, a level III probationer, who had three felony warrants for his arrest stemming from three recent separate pursuits as well as a capias out of Kent County Superior Court for violation of probation. 

Police said that while patrolling the area of West Glenwood Avenue in Smyrna, GTF members spotted Lowman while he was operating a silver Nissan Altima that he had been driving in a pursuit earlier in the day. Troopers said they attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle just west of North DuPont Boulevard (US13) when he fled eastbound onto US13 northbound and then east on Paddock Road where the he continued out of sight. 

Troopers and probation officers continued searching for the vehicle in the area of Fleming Landing Road (Rt9) when a witness informed them the car was seen traveling eastbound on Deakyneville Road, which circled around and would only lead back to Rt9. Police said the car was then located traveling westbound on Thoroughfare Neck Road and turned northbound on Rt9 where it continued for approximately a half a mile before Lowman lost control of the vehicle, overturning in a sharp corner just north of Saw Mill Branch Road.
 
Police said Lowman was able to exit the vehicle through the rear windshield, which was shattered in the crash, and attempted to run away but was taken into custody after a brief struggle in which troopers deployed a Taser to subdue him without further incident.
 
A front seat passenger in the vehicle was identified as Lowman's girlfriend, 18-year-old Marshay L. Johnson of Smyrna, who was able to exit the vehicle and was taken into custody without incident.
 
Troopers said a search of the vehicle revealed a fully loaded .22-caliber handgun, one bag of heroin weighing .025 grams, 15 Alprazolam prescription pills, .01 gram of marijuana, three hypodermic needles, additional drug paraphernalia, and more than $550 in suspected drug proceeds.
 
Both Lowman and Johnson were transported to Christiana Medical Center where they were treated for non-life-threatening injuries. 

Upon Johnson's release, she was charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a controlled substance (heroin), possession of a firearm by person prohibited, second-degree conspiracy, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was then ordered held on $39,000 secured bond. 

Johnson was admitted due to some undisclosed injuries and was arraigned by a judge for his violation of probation capias and held in the custody of Department of Correction on $100,000 cash only bond. At a future date he will be arraigned on a variety of drug, weapon and traffic-related charges, police said.
