WOODSIDE, Del.  - A Felton man is arrested on drugs and weapons charges after a traffic stop.

According to Delaware State Police, 29-year-old Stephen Obeda was arrested Friday after a trooper pulled over a car he was in that was traveling without headlights in Woodside.

Investigators say the trooper found two handguns wrapped in a towel and also recovered heroin and marijuana. Authorities say one of the handguns had the serial number removed.

Investigators say they also found additional quantities of heroin during a search of Obeda's house.

Obeda was charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, two counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, carrying a concealed deadly weapon, possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was committed to James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $85,250 secured bail.

Police say the driver of the car was issued a traffic summons, and two other passengers were charged with misdemeanor drug crimes.
