BRIDGEVILLE, Del.- Delaware State Police say a weekend traffic stop led to the arrest of a Bridgeville man after a traffic stop led to the seizure of a loaded gun and illegal drugs.
 
Police said the incident occurred at around 12:45 p.m. Sunday as a trooper on patrol in the area of Sussex Highway (US13) and Laurel Road (SR24) observed a white Chevrolet Cobalt with a shattered front windshield. 

A traffic stop was conducted on the vehicle and contact was made with 27-year-old Brian E. Walker, who police said was driving the car. The trooper completed the required paperwork to issue a citation and returned to the car to explain it. Police said Walker was asked to step out of the car due to some suspicious activity occurring inside the car and when asked if he had any weapons on him, he ran into a wooded area behind the Lakeside Hotel where he was taken into custody without further incident. 

Police said that during a search of Walker, he was found to be in possession of a loaded .40-caliber handgun, as well as 557 bags of packaged heroin weighing almost 14 grams.  A computer check revealed the handgun was reported stolen on Aug. 16, from a home on Carey's Camp Road near Millsboro.
 
Walker was transported back to Troop5 in Bridgeville where he was charged with possession of a controlled substance (heroin), possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony,    possession with intent to deliver heroin, carrying a concealed deadly weapon, receiving a stolen firearm, third-degree criminal solicitation, resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia and motor vehicles requiring safety glass. He was ordered held on $75,201 cash bail.
