Georgetown sex offender arrested following police chase
A Georgetown man was arrested after police say he caused a chase when officers tried to pull him over for failing to re-register as a sex offender.
Georgetown Police charged 25-year-old Eder Rosas with numerous traffic charges and failing to re-register as a sex offender after a vehicle chase Thursday afternoon.
Rosas was observed by detectives driving on South Bedford Street. When officers tried to perform a traffic stop, he refused to stop and fled for several miles at a high rate of speed, according to police.

With the assistance of Delaware State Police, Rosas was located at a residence in Frankford and taken into custody without incident.
Rosas was committed to Sussex Correctional Institute in lieu of $4900.00 secured bond on the following charges: failure to re-register as a sex offender, disregard a police officer’s signal, resisting arrest, driving while suspended/revoked, reckless driving, aggressive driving and multiple traffic violations.
