FELTON, Del. -- Delaware State Police say they have arrested a Dover man for drug and weapons charges following a traffic stop Saturday afternoon.

Police say the incident occurred at around 2:20 p.m. when a trooper on a routine patrol on southbound DuPont Highway, in the area of Walnut Shade Road, saw a Dodge Stratus swerving out of control. When the car turned onto Walnut Shade Road, the trooper initiated a traffic stop. Upon approaching the car and coming into contact with the driver, Anthony J. Cadiz, 25, the trooper immediately noticed the strong smell of marijuana coming from the inside of the car. Police say the trooper performed a search of the car where he found 8.8 grams of marijuana, .12 grams (8 bags) of heroin, and a digital scale. Police also located a loaded Springfield 9mm handgun inside of a book bag, which police say a follow up check revealed that it had been reported as stolen during a Felton area burglary on Tuesday, October 4, 2016.

Cadiz was arrested and transported to Troop 3 where police say he was charged with Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited, Possession of Ammunition by a Person Prohibited, Carrying a Concealed Deadly Weapon, Receiving a Stolen Firearm, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Driving on the Wrong Side of the Roadway. He was arraigned at JP Court 7 and committed to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Institution in default of $20,100.00 cash bail.
