MILFORD, Del. - Police wrap up a month long investigation with a arrest, and large drug seizure. Milford Police Narcotics Division say that their investigation lead to searching a North Street home, where they found 54 baggies of heroin, surveillance equipment, drug paraphernalia items, and an undisclosed amount of money. Police were still reportedly looking for Joseph Levan, 25, of Harrington.

They say they caught up with him near Abbotts Pond Road, and attempted to take him into custody, but he wouldn't get out of his vehicle. Police say that Levan tried to flee, by driving directly into a K-9 patrol vehicle, head on, twice, while both the officer and k-9 officer were still in the unit. The collision caused Levan's car to break down, and gave officers a chance to nab him out of the car, while apparently attempting to flee again.

Police say that Levan was in possession of 130 baggies of heroin when he was arrested. He was charged with 1st degree reckless endangering, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, felony resisting arrest with force, possession with the intent to deliver heroin, and other related offences. He is being held at Sussex Correction Institute on $290,000 bond, plus and additional $50,000 bond from probation and parole.
