The Delaware State Police arrested a suspect after a traffic stop led to the discovery of drugs.
The incident occurred on Tuesday, April 3, at approximately 10:25 a.m. when a trooper observed a red Ford Taurus traveling east on Hardscrabble Road above the posted speed limit. As the trooper activated his emergency equipment, the operator, identified as 20-year-old Cory R. Mister, of Seaford, continued traveling east. Mister lost control of his vehicle, crashed into a ditch and attempted to flee the scene on foot. A brief foot pursuit ensued and subsequently Mister was taken into custody. Further investigation revealed that Mister was in possession of over $17,000 in suspected drug proceeds and 407.65 grams of marijuana.
Mister was transported back to Troop 4 where he was charged with possession of marijuana, resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia, tampering with physical evidence, reckless driving and other multiple traffic-related offenses. He was arraigned before Justice of the Peace Court 2 and released on $9,110 unsecured bond.
