Police want help finding 'most wanted'; Darrius Jamarr Jeffries tops the list

The Middletown Police Department needs your help in finding people in the borough who are wanted by the law.

Police need to find these people in order to serve warrants on them, said Patrol Officer Keegan Wenner.

You can provide information to the police on an anonymous basis.

Topping the department’s list of most-wanted suspects is Darrius Jamarr Jeffries Jr., 20, of the 2400 block of Kensington Street in Harrisburg.

Police filed charges against Jeffries on July 12, following an incident in which Jeffries allegedly tried to have sexual relations with a 15-year-old girl while in a parked vehicle in the 200 block of North Spring Street, according to arrest papers filed with District Judge David Judy.

Jeffries is charged with three separate felony counts including knowledge or intends to obstruct child abuse report or investigation, corruption of minors, and unlawful contact with a minor.

He is also charged with misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure, indecent assault against a person younger than 16 years old, and false identification to law enforcement.

There is the potential that the department could provide a monetary reward in exchange for information that leads to a subject being captured, Wenner said. However, this will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

Police also seek information regarding anyone in the borough known to be violating terms of his or her probation or parole.

Anyone with information regarding someone who is wanted in Middletown is urged to contact Wenner. You can call his work cellphone at 717-810-6528 or send him an email at kwenner@middletownborough.com

Wenner could not estimate how many people at any given time in Middletown are wanted, or are on probation or parole.
