BRIDGEVILLE, Del. - Three men were arrested on drug charges during a traffic stop in Bridgeville, and Police are still looking for one more. Delaware State Police say on Monday evening, around 8:20 PM, a Trooper on patrol watched a Dodge Intrepid run a stop sign at the intersection of Coverdale Road and Hastings Farm Road, and then continue on Coverdale Road.

According to the report, the Trooper pulled up behind the car, and turned on his lights and sirens, but the car continued through the intersection of Coverdale Road and Old Furnace Road, until it pulled into the shoulder. Police say the driver of the vehicle then got out of the car, and fled on foot. The Trooper was reportedly able to detain the three passengers, 22-year-old Keion Sturgis of Dagsboro, 25-year-old Tywand Jennings, of Frankford, and 27-year-old Delane Jacobs, of Selbyville, inside the car, until additional Troopers arrived.

A search of the car reportedly revealed 130 bags of heroin weighting approximately 1.95 grams. Sturgis reportedly had 18 Oxycodone pills, that were not prescribed to him, in his sock. Police say both Jennings and Jacobs were wanted out of Sussex County courts. All three men were then arrested.

Sturgis was charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance - oxycodone, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance - heroin, possession of a controlled substance - heroin, 2nd degree conspiracy, possession of a prescription drug without a prescription, and 4 counts of possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held at Sussex Correctional Institution on $7,500 bond.
