MILLSBORO, Del. - Delaware State Police say a Millsboro man has been arrested for selling drugs from his home and his ice cream truck.

Police say a two-week investigation started after detectives from the Sussex County Drug Unit received a tip that Merrill J. Weatherly, 47, was selling illegal drugs from his home in the 24000 block of Cerulean Lane.

Police said they also discovered that Weatherly was allegedly selling drugs in the Oak Orchard area from his personal ice cream truck. Police say the Sussex Drug Unit made a traffic stop on Dec. 9 of Weatherly's ice cream truck, a 1977 GMC, when he was leaving his home. With a search warrant, troopers said they found 17 oxycodone tablets and more than $970 in the ice cream truck, along with 6 Suboxone strips in Weatherly's home.

Weatherly has been charged with dealing a Schedule II controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a controlled substance, possession of a prescription drug, and maintaining a dwelling for keeping drugs.
