*UPDATE* Alleged Carjacking Victim Charged with Filing False Report– Bear

Date Posted: Monday, July 2nd, 2018

Bear –  Delaware State Police detectives have obtained arrest warrants for Jane A. Macauley, 30, of Middletown, for falsely reporting a carjacking incident in April, and are asking for the public’s assistance in locating her.

The original incident occurred at approximately 9:31 p.m., Wednesday, April 18, 2018, on DE Route 71 (Red Lion Road), in the area of Old Summit Road, Bear. Macauley advised the investigating Trooper that her Chevrolet Impala was rear ended by another vehicle and after pulling over to assess the damage, an occupant of the striking vehicle entered  her vehicle and drove off.

Through a variety of investigative measures, detectives were able to determine that  Macauley falsely reported the incident in order to make a fraudulent insurance claim. Warrants are currently on file charging Macauley with one count each of Insurance Fraud and Falsely Reporting an Incident.

Macauley is described as a black female, 5’8″, 155 lbs. No photograph is available.

Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Macauley is asked to contact Detective B. McDerby at Troop 2 by calling 302-365-8436 or by calling 911.

Information may also be provided by calling Delaware crime stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333 or via the internet at
