Delaware State Police troopers have arrested a Dover man on numerous drug charges.
The case began shortly after 1 a.m. Dec. 4, as a state trooper and probation and parole officer were in the Capitol Park development, said police spokesman Cpl. John Day. The officers spotted a 1994 Mercury Tracer being driven on Presidents Drive, but once the driver saw the state police patrol car, he stopped the Tracer in front of an abandoned house. The driver, whose name was withheld, and the suspect, identified as Rashad Miller, 33, got out of the car and walked away.
As the officers came up to the men, the probation officer recognized Miller as a probationer. While talking to Miller, the officer noticed Miller continually reaching toward the rear of his waistband, Day said. A pat down revealed a large bottle in Miller’s pants that was found to contain 129 grams of PCP (including the weight of the bottle.)
Miller was taken into custody and a search turned up approximately 8.2 grams of crack cocaine in a pants pocket and four bags of heroin in his wallet.
He was charged with possession of a controlled substance in a tier 5 quantity, three counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance in a tier 1 quantity, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Miller was jailed at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Institute after failing to pay a $125,500 cash bail.
The driver was issued a traffic summons for driving with a suspended license and released.
