Dover Police, following up on a trespassing complaint at a vacant home in The Hamlet subdivision, have arrested a Georgia man on drug charges.
Officers were called to the home in the unit block of Heritage Drive at approximate 11:10 a.m. Sunday, said police spokesman Capt. Tim Stump. Spotting the officers as they arrived, a number of people ran from the home, but four were later caught and charged with trespassing.
The suspect, identified as Eljere Ingram, 32, of Augusta, Ga., had tried but failed to flush a large amount of PCP down the toilet, Stump said.
Police recovered 2984.5 grams of PCP mixture and 1.2 grams of marijuana.
PCP, also known as "angel dust," is an illegal hallucinogenic drug often mixed with ether and then sprayed onto marijuana.
Ingram was charged with possession of PCP in Tier 5 quantity, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest and trespassing.
He was ordered held at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center, Smyrna, after failing to pay a $51,250 secured bond.
