DOVER, Del.- A Dover man is facing a slew of drug and related charges following a high-speed police chase that happened over the weekend in Kent County.

Police said that shortly after 11 a.m. Saturday, a trooper on patrol saw a dark blue Crown Victoria fail to use a signal as the car was turning westbound onto East Lebanon Road. According to police, the car continued to make unsafe lane changes before the driver was pulled him over behind the Wawa convenience store on Route 10.

The trooper did a computer check on the driver but was unable to find information about him. Police said the trooper then began to return to the driver's car, when the driver, identified as 29-year-old Terrance A. Oliver sped away, prompting the trooper to follow him on a high-speed chase.

Investigators said Oliver headed westbound onto SR10, crossing South State Street before making a U-turn and then began traveling eastbound on SR10. Oliver turned southbound on South State Street where he continued to drive past other cars at high speeds in a reckless manner, investigators said.

Police said Oliver then ran a red light and then turned onto Voshells Mill Star Hill Road and continued to drive uncontrollably when he it eventually turned left onto Headstart Lane and began driving in a field behind the Greater Life Christian Church.

Investigators said Oliver then jumped from the moving car, which crashed into a nearby church porch, in his attempt to get away from the police before the trooper subdued him with a Taser. 

Police say after taking Oliver into custody, the troopers searched the crash area and located 199 bags of heroin that totaled 4.9 grams. According to police, Oliver attempted to discard the heroin as he attempted to flee police.  He was also in possession of more than $450 in suspected drug proceeds, police said.

Oliver was charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin, tampering with physical evidence, criminal impersonation, possession of drug paraphernalia, disregarding a police officer signal, resisting arrest, driving while suspended and 19 other traffic-related offenses. He has been committed to James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $35,514 secured bond.

    New Waterfront Hotel Breaks Ground in O.C., Part 2

    The location of a new waterfront hotel that recently broke ground in Ocean City is raising some eyebrows with neighbors in the downtown area.

    The Cambria Hotel is being built in the vacant lot that sits just north of the Route 50 drawbridge, meaning it will be one of the first things drivers see headed into town.

    Brian Plimack, who lives just behind the development, said the hotel is too much of a drastic change to the town's skyline.
