Frederica man arrested for violating no-contact order

HARRINGTON – Jeffrey L. Timmons, 58 of the 4700 block of Andrews Lake Rd. in Frederica, was arrested by the Harrington Police Department on Friday, Feb. 5 after police responded to a domestic dispute report.

While on patrol, officers were dispatched to the Super 8 Motel in the Liberty Plaza Shopping Center for a report of a dispute in progress.

According to officers, they heard a male and female yelling at each other upon arrival. Both parties inside initially refused to unlock the door but finally did so allowing the officers to enter the room.

Police contacted Timmons and a female inside the room and determined that both were intoxicated and involved in the verbal argument. Witnesses in other rooms could hear the couple arguing which prompted them to call police, according to officers.

A computer check revealed that Timmons had an active no-contact in place for a previous domestic incident and he was prohibited from have any contact with the female that was in the room with him. He was taken into custody and transported to the Harrington Police Department for processing.

He was charged with disorderly conduct and breech of release and was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 3. He was then committed to the Sussex Correctional Institute in default of $200 cash bond.
