BRIDGEVILLE, Del.- Delaware State Police say troopers arrested two people Tuesday night after they found marijuana, Oxycodone, a stolen revolver, and tens of thousands of dollars in cash in a car following a traffic stop near Bridgeville. Two children under the age of 5 were also in the car, according to police.

Authorities say a car carrying Sharnice Harris, 22 of Federalsburg, Md., Marc Muse, 28 of Seaford, Del., and Harris' children, ages 3 and 4, was pulled over for speeding on Chaplins Chapel Road around 8 p.m.

While one trooper ran a computer check revealing Harris' license was suspended, another contacted Muse and found pills in his hand which were later determined to be Oxycodone, police said.

The troopers then removed all four passengers from the car and located the fully loaded .38 caliber revolver in the glove compartment, which another computer check revealed had been stolen from a vehicle near Seaford on April 15, according to police.

Police said that during a pat down 9 grams of individually packaged marijuana were found on Harris, and in her purse was more than $28,000 in suspected drug money.

Muse was charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, receiving a stolen firearm, second-degree conspiracy, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of marijuana, and two counts of unlawfully dealing with a child under 18 during drug activity. Harris received the same charges in addition to driving without a license, two counts of child not properly restrained, and speeding.

Muse is being held at Sussex Correctional Institution on a $43,500 secured bond, while Harris is being held at the Delores J. Baylor Women's Correctional Institution in lieu of a $23,254 secured bond.

Both children were turned over to relatives of Harris.
