(June 7, 2019) After leading law enforcement across state lines following an alleged armed carjacking in West Ocean City, Ryan Michael Lewis, 25, of Parkville was detained and arrested in Sussex County last Wednesday afternoon.
The Worcester County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release that deputies responded to the West Ocean City area for a reported carjacking on May 29 at approximately 2:50 p.m.
The release said within minutes the vehicle in question was located in Berlin, but the driver, later identified as Lewis, allegedly refused law enforcement requests to stop.
The Sheriff’s Office said Lewis proceeded to lead deputies on a lengthy pursuit that ended in Sussex County.
The release said after crossing into Delaware, Lewis allegedly stopped the vehicle and surrendered.
The Worcester County Bureau of Investigators assumed the investigation and secured an arrest warrant for Lewis.
Worcester County State’s Attorney Kris Heiser said this Wednesday that Lewis remains in custody in Delaware and is currently awaiting extradition back to Maryland on numerous felony charges.
