DOVER, Del.- Delaware State Police say two women are facing multiple charges after a traffic stop on SR 1 in Dover led to a drug bust and the seizure of a stolen gun out of Virginia.

Troopers said that shortly after 10 a.m. Monday, a trooper conducting speed enforcement on SR1 southbound near the Dover toll plaza clocked a vehicle traveling above the posted speed limit.  A traffic stop was conducted on the Mazda 6 just south of the toll plaza where the operator, 25-year-old Angelina Correa, of Portsmouth, Va., was contacted.  An odor of marijuana was detected coming from the vehicle and a search was conducted, police said. Troopers said the search revealed 12 individually packaged bags of cocaine (1.68 grams) and a .45 caliber handgun, which was reported stolen to the Virginia Beach Police Department on Aug. 31.

Police said both the driver and a passenger, Keosha Cherry, 26 of Norfolk, Va., were taken into custody without incident and upon searching Cherry, she was found to be in possession of 2.18 of marijuana.  

Both suspects were transported back to Troop 3 in Camden where Correa was charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession with intent to deliver cocaine, carrying a concealed deadly weapon, receiving a stolen firearm, possession of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana, speeding, and failure to have insurance in possession.  She was arraigned at JP2 and committed to Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution on $43,503 secured bond.
