The Harrington Police Department arrested 26-year-old Harrington resident Robert Bosley, after a road rage complaint resulted in a vehicle search that revealed 17 bags of heroin and drug paraphernalia.
Police responded to an incident in the Felton area on Jan. 28 after reports of a driver possibly wielding a gun and heading toward Harrington, said police spokesman Deputy Chief Keith Shyers.
Police were given updates on the suspect’s location and finally observed the vehicle in the 100 block of Reese Avenue. After the vehicle stopped, Bosley, the driver, exited the driver’s side.
As an officer contacted Bosley and attempted to handcuff him, Bosley attempted to pull away, but was then taken into custody, Shyers said.
After the officer explained the reason for the stop, he was given consent to search the vehicle, Shyers said.
A vehicle search revealed 17 bags of heroin, a box of hypodermic needles and other drug paraphernalia, Shyers said.
Bosley was transported to the Harrington Police Department for processing and was arraigned via videophone through Justice of the Peace Court 2.
Bosley was charged with possession of a controlled or counterfeit substance (heroin), resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving while suspended.
He was released on a $2,000 unsecured bond.
