WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- Wilmington police say an officer who received an award arrested an allegedly drug dealer after a foot chase hours later.

Police say Cpl. Paul Ciber and Officer Justin Cannon were on patrol about 9:30 a.m. Thursday when they questioned a man they said was acting suspiciously.

Police say the man ran away and tried to discard 13 bags of heroin which were in his pocket. Authorities say the officers caught the man and arrested him.

The night before, Ciber had received the 2012 Kiwanis Officer of the Year Award.
