Police seek help finding suspect in helicopter scam - Delaware

Police are searching for a Delmar man they say stole money through an investment scheme.

In February Rodney Bounds, 48, approached a 76-year-old Delmar man and asked him to invest in a helicopter business, Cpl. John Day said.

The victim gave Bounds $5,000. Bounds contacted him several months later and received more money, police said.

For the past several months, the victim has been unsuccessfully attempting to contact Bounds. Bounds cannot be located and police have been unable to find any sign that the helicopter company was a legitimate business, Day said.

Anyone with information about Bounds’ location is asked to contact Troop 4 at (302) 856-5850 ext. 257, or by using the State Police Mobile Crime Tip App available at: 

Information also may be given to Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-3333, via the internet at, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
