Troopers said 27-year-old Thomas A. Purnell, of Ellendale, surrendered to police Thursday afternoon. Police said Purnell's mother saw him on a video aired on WBOC-TV in an early morning broadcast at which time she contacted him and brought him to Troop 7 shortly thereafter.
    
Purnell was charged with hindering prosecution, felony resisting arrest, second-degree conspiracy and disorderly conduct. He was released on $6,500 unsecured bond.
    
Police said troopers responded to a 911 call from the Wawa Food Market  on Dartmouth Road early Wednesday morning. The first trooper on the scene confronted 28-year-old Reginald McGlotten, of Millsboro, for disorderly conduct.
    
Police said McGlotten refused to leave the store, so the trooper tried to take him into custody. Then others on the scene pulled the trooper away from McGlotten, who fled from the store on foot. McGlotten was soon captured by a Rehoboth Beach officer who used a Taser to subdue him.

McGlotten is charged with felony resisting arrest, second-degree conspiracy, offensive touching of a law enforcement officer and disorderly conduct. He was ordered held on $2,750 secured bond. Police said McGlotten was also found to be wanted out of multiple courts for capiases.
