MILLSBORO, Del. - A traffic stop lands one Dagsboro man behind bars on drug charges. According to Delaware State Police, on Sunday around 2:30 PM, a trooper with lights and sirens on, attempted to pull over a Chevrolet Malibu for a traffic violation on School Lane in Millsboro.

The car continued until it reportedly abruptly stopped in front of Long Neck Elementary, where police say, a male passenger jumped out and started running with a plastic bag in his hand. The trooper apparently followed suit, chasing after the passenger, while the Malibu sped off. DSP caught up with 22-year-old Derrell Gibbs, and took him and the plastic bag into custody.

Police say the bag had 1252 bags of heroin inside, totally over 31 grams, along with drug paraphernalia. Gibbs was charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin, possession of heroin, 2nd degree conspiracy, resisting arrest, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He is being held at Sussex Correctional Institute on $81,600 bond. Police say that they are still looking to identify the driver of the Malibu, and their investigation is still on-going.
