Members of the Delaware State Police Kent County Governor's Task Force arrested two men Wednesday morning after they were found to be carrying illegal drugs.
Officers made a traffic stop in the area of Webbs Lane and South State Street after spotting a car being driven without tail lights, said police spokesman Master Cpl. Gary Fournier.
One of the passengers, identified as Richard Peace, 25, of Dover, allegedly gave the trooper a false name, resulting in his being taken into custody, Fournier said. A search of his person and the area where he had been seated turned up 6.2 grams of cocaine, an Oxycodone pill, a digital scale and more than $1,200 in suspected drug proceeds.
The second passenger, identified as Dorsey S. Davis, 24, was then asked to get out of the car and a pat down search revealed 53 bags of heroin weighing more than 1.3 grams along with $130 in suspected drug proceeds, Fournier said.
The driver, a 31-year-old woman who was not identified, was released after being issued a citation for driving without taillights.
Peace was charged with two counts of possession with intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substance, criminal impersonation and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was later jailed at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center, Smyrna, in default of a $45,750 secured bond.
Davis was charged with a single count of possession with intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was ordered held at the Vaughn center in default of a $12,750 secured bond.
