BRIDGEVILLE, Del. - Three men were arrested on drug charges during a traffic stop in Bridgeville, and Police are still looking for one more.

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.
