DOVER, Del.– Dover police say a weekend traffic stop led to the discovery of marijuana packed for sale and the arrest of the same man who accused members of the same department of beating him during an arrest last month.
Police said that shortly before 9 p.m. Saturday, an officer stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation on College Road at Jason Street. The officer detected a strong odor of burnt marijuana coming from the vehicle, according to police. They said a further investigation revealed that two occupants possessed 114.4 grams of marijuana packaged for sale.
The officer arrested two people, 30-year-old Antonio Barlow and 25-year-old Quaheem Hall on drug-related charges. Both were arraigned and committed to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $11,100 bond.
Barlow was charged last month with loitering and resisting arrest. He then accused the Dover Police Department of police brutality.
