Man faces charges after Pursuit A Wilmington man faces numerous charges, including DUI and Reckless Dri-

ving after he led state police on a pursuit the morning of June 5 that lasted approximately ten and half miles. At approximately 1:23 a.m. a trooper clocked a green Pontiac Grand AM traveling ninety-five miles per hour in a posted fifty-five mile per hour zone on SR 1 (Coastal Highway) south of Milton. The Trooper attempted to stop the Pontiac, which failed to stop at the command of the officer. While pursuing the suspect vehicle, the trooper observed it speeding (up to 95 mph), driving in a reckless and aggressive manner. While traveling on SR1 the suspect lost control of the vehicle and exited the road and nearly struck a patrol vehicle. After gaining control of the suspect vehicle, the suspect traveled south on SR1 continuing to ignore the commands to stop by police. The pursuit continued into the city limits of Rehoboth Beach at which point Rehoboth Beach Police Department took command of the pursuit. The operator then struck a Rehoboth Beach Police Department and a Delaware State Police vehicle before being apprehended at the scene by officers. The Delaware State Police have charged the operator, Christopher H. Huston, 21 years old, of the 2000 block of Draemar Rd., Wilmington, with - disregarding a police officer signal; drugs not in original container; driving across median; driving without a license; failure to have insurance identification in possession; 13 counts of failure to use a turn signal; 2 counts of stopping in the roadway; speeding; following too closely; 3 counts of disregarding a red light; 13 counts of improper lane change; DUI driving under the influence; reckless driving; aggressive driving; and operating an unregistered vehicle. This investigation is ongoing.

IRS warns about new e-mail scams The Internal Revenue Service alerted taxpayers to the latest versions of an email scam intended to fool people into believing they are under investigation by the agency's Criminal Investigation division. The e-mail purporting to be from IRS Criminal Investigation falsely states that the person is under a criminal probe for submitting a false tax return to the California Franchise Tax Board. The e-mail seeks to entice people to click on a link or open an attachment to learn more information about the complaint against them. The IRS warned that the e-mail link and attachment is a Trojan Horse that can take over a computer hard drive and allow someone to have remote access to the computer. Do not to click the link in the email or open the attachment. Similar e-mail variations suggest a customer has filed a complaint against a company and the IRS can act as an arbitrator. The IRS does not send out unsolicited e-mails or ask for detailed personal and financial information. Additionally, the IRS

never asks people for the PIN numbers, passwords or similar secret access information for their credit card, bank, or other financial accounts. Recipients of questionable e-mails claiming to come from the IRS should not open any attachments or click on any links contained in the e-mails. Instead, they should forward the emails to phishing@irs.gov. The instructions may be found on IRS.gov by entering the term "phishing" in the search box. The IRS also sees other e-mail scams that involve tricking victims into revealing private information over the Internet or "phishing" for information. Other fraudulent e-mail scams try to entice taxpayers to click their way to a fake IRS web site and ask for bank account numbers. Another e-mail tells taxpayers the IRS is holding a refund (often $63.80) and seeks financial information. Still another email claims the IRS's 'anti-fraud commission' is investigating their tax returns. More information is available on IRS.gov.
