MIDDLETOWN, Del.- Delaware State Police say a traffic stop on Route 1 in Middletown led to the arrest of a New Jersey man after troopers found a more than 250 grams of cocaine in his car.

Troopers say they pulled over 23-year-old Bilal Jones of North Plainfield on Friday shortly after 3 p.m. after he changed lanes without properly using a turn signal. According to police, troopers stopped Jones' Hyundai Sonata and smelled marijuana. Troopers said a search of the vehicle led to the discovery of a vacuum-sealed bag with 261 grams of cocaine in the vehicle's trunk.

Jones was charged with possession of a controlled substance in a tier 5 quantity, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and failure to signal a lane change. He was released after posting $25,001 secured bail.

A passenger in the vehicle was not charged.
