Over 200 Pounds of Marijuana Discovered Following Traffic Stop

Posted: Updated:

DAGSBORO, Del.- A California man was arrested Sunday on multiple drug related charges after a traffic stop in Sussex County.

The Dagsboro Police Department for a traffic stop on a California tagged car on DuPont Boulevard. The officer determined that the driver, 57-year-old Charles Mulvihill of California, was driving with a suspended license, no proof of insurance, and his truck was not equipped with an ignition interlock device, which it was supposed to have.

A search of the passenger compartment found a prescription bottle containing oxycodone pills not prescribed to Mulvihill. The officer also found an electric money counter, several ledgers, and $1,000 in cash, which police say was concealed under the dashboard.

Police then searched the bed of the truck and found six large duffel bags which Mulvihill said was contained marijuana. Further investigation confirmed that in the duffel bags were 98 vacuum sealed bags containing a total of 212.09 pounds of marijuana.

A more thorough search of Mulvihill's truck, following his arrest, led to the discovery of a large military-style box welded underneath the truck containing $276,570 in cash.

Mulvihill was charged on multiple drug and traffic violations and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution.
