Seaford Man Sentenced Following Guilty Plea to Drugs and Weapons Charges

Posted: Updated:

SEAFORD, Del. - A Seaford man was sentenced to five years in prison after a traffic stop led to drug and weapons charges earlier this year. 

According to the Delaware Department of Justice, Stephon Hammond, 24, was pulled over in February for illegally passing over a solid yellow line. Authorities said that state police noticed several bundles of heroin fall from Hammond's sweatshirt when he was asked for his license.

Police then searched the car and found 390 bags of heroin and a loaded semi-automatic handgun. 

Hammond pleaded guilty to drug dealing and having a firearm when he was prohibited from doing so. Authorities said Hammond had been barred from having a gun after previous felony convictions. He was sentenced to five years in prison followed by one year of home confinement and then 18 months of probation.
