DOVER, Del.- Delaware State Police say an early Wednesday traffic stop in Kent County has led to the arrests of two Dover men on drug charges.
Police said that shortly before 1 a.m., troopers and probation officers assigned to the DSP Kent County Governor's Task Force, were patrolling in the area of South State Street and Webbs Lane near Dover when they observed a blue Ford Focus traveling northbound on South State Street without any tail lights.
Police said a traffic stop was conducted and contact was made with a 31-year-old female driver and her two male passengers, 25-year-old Richard S. Peace and 24-year-old Dorsey S. Davis. Authorities said that as a trooper went back to the patrol vehicle to conduct a computer inquiry on all the occupants, it was determined that Peace had given a false name. He was then asked to exit the passenger's side of the car and was taken into custody. Police said a search of Peace and the area he was seated revealed 6.2 grams of cocaine, an Oxycodone pill, a digital scale, and more than $1,200 in suspected drug proceeds.
Davis and the 31-year-old driver were also asked to exit the vehicle. Police said that during a patdown search of Davis, troopers discovered 53 bags of heroin weighing more than 1.3 grams, along with $130 in suspected drug proceeds. The female driver was released from the scene after being given a traffic citation for operating a motor vehicle without proper taillights.
Peace and Davis were both transported back to Troop 3 near Camden. Peace was charged with two counts of possession with intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substance, criminal impersonation and possession of drug paraphernalia. Davis was charged with possession with intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Both were later held on $45,750 and $12,750 secured bonds respectively.
