FELTON, Del. - The Delaware State Police Kent County Drug Unit has arrested a Felton man in connection with an August 2016 drug investigation.

Authorities say Robert D. Jones, of Felton, was taken into custody on Thursday Oct 27 around 2:15 p.m. as he was entering an apartment complex in Smyrna.  Jones was already wanted in connection with a heroin bust that took place on August 24th.

During that incident, police say that Jones fled a residence in the unit block of Skinner Lane in Felton, this after detectives were attempting arrest him for a large scale heroin operation going on at the house.  A search conducted of the house on Skinner Lane resulted in the recovery of 4,212 bags (63.18 grams) of heroin.

Police say Jones also fled from an officer attempting to conduct a traffic stop back in August. Detectives were able to gather information that he has been living in the Heron Run Apartments with an acquaintance, who was later identified as Ikea M Dunbar of Smyrna.

Robert Jones, who authorities say initially gave a false name upon being contacted, was transported back to Smyrna Police Department where he was charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance in both a fourth and five tiered quantity (heroin), tampering with physical evidence, second-degree conspiracy, possession of drug paraphernalia, along with numerous traffic violations when he fled from the traffic stop. 

Authorities report Jones was also charged with possession of ammunition by a person prohibited when four shotgun shells were found in the car he was driving, as well as criminal impersonation. 

Jones was arraigned at JP2 and committed to James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $66,510.00 cash bond. Ikea Dunbar was been charged with hindering prosecution and released on $2,000.00 unsecured bond.
