Laurel PD is Asking for the Public’s Help

Attempt to Locate Vehicle Pursuit Suspect

The Laurel Police Department is requesting the public’s assistance locating the below pictured suspect for an active warrant related to a high-speed vehicle pursuit.

On 10/16/23 at approximately 7:50pm, a Laurel Police Officer on patrol attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a green Honda Civic after observing the vehicle traveling at 103MPH in a 55MPH zone. The officer also noticed the vehicle was displaying a fictitious registration plate.

Upon attempting to stop the vehicle, it fled at a high rate of speed. The officer briefly pursued the vehicle as it made multiple unsafe lane changes, disregarded traffic control devices, and passed in no-passing zones. The officer eventually discontinued the pursuit in the interest of public safety.

Further investigation determined the correct registration for the vehicle, along with the identification of the driver at the time of the pursuit. The driver was identified as Jason Dailey (35) of Milford, DE.

As a result of this incident, the investigating officer obtained warrants for Dailey’s arrest to answer for the following crimes:

-Disregarding Police Signal (Class G Felony)
-Resisting Arrest (Class A Misdemeanor)
-Driving While License Suspended/Revoked (Misdemeanor)
-Aggressive Driving (Misdemeanor)
-Reckless Driving 90MPH or Greater (Misdemeanor)
-Several Additional Traffic Violations

The issuance of a warrant for the arrest of a subject is merely a showing of probable cause by the investigating agency related to the above incident. The subject, once arrested, is considered to be innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

A recent photo of Dailey’s vehicle is being included with this release due to the distinct features of the vehicle. If a member of the public observes Dailey or the pictured vehicle, please call 911. Please do not approach or attempt to confront Dailey.
