Posted:

DOVER, Del.- Nearly 800 bags of heroin were seized in a drug bust that sent two men to jail Friday in Dover.

According to police, members of the Delaware State Police Drug Unit, Governor's Task Force, Milford Police Department and Dover Police Department observed a blue minivan in the Wendy's parking lot located at 1710 North DuPont Highway at approximately 6:00 p.m. Friday. Detectives had previously determined that an occupant of the van was distributing heroin.
 
Police said detectives made contact with the occupants of the van, including Jamar K. Tate, 31, of Wilmington, and Colby T. Hopkins, 24, of Milton. Tate was found to have 650 bags of heroin in his pants, along with $500 in his possession. Police said detectives found an additional 130 bags of heroin in the center console of the vehicle, and that detectives determined Tate had just sold those drugs to Hopkins.
 
Tate was charged with possession of a controlled substance in a tier 5 quantity, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance in a tier 4 quantity, delivery of a controlled substance in a tier 2 quantity with an aggravating factor, conspiracy second degree, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was committed to Vaughn Correctional Center on $39,000 cash bail.
