DOVER, Del.- A Dover man targeted in a drug investigation after selling heroin to an undercover police officer was sentenced to prison.

In January 2019, members of the State Police Kent County Drug Unit and Kent County Governor's Task Force reportedly saw 26-year-old Javon Young driving a car from which he sold the drugs, and knowing Young did not have a driver's license, attempted to pull him over, according to the Delaware Department of Justice.  

Young refused to stop and led police on a chase that ended after Young collided with a police cruiser, prosecutors said.

Young, who reportedly had 185 bags of heroin when taken into custody, pleaded guilty in May to drug dealing, drug dealing a counterfeit controlled substance, and disregarding a police officer.

A Superior Court judge sentenced Young to three years in prison followed by one year of either work release or home confinement, then one year of probation. He was also fined $575.
