Dover Police say they arrested a Dover man Tuesday evening after a search warrant of his home reportedly revealed a large quantity of marijuana and marijuana derivatives, heroin, ecstasy and a stolen handgun.

At around 6 PM Tuesday, members of the Dover Police Department's Drugs, Vice and Organized Crime unit carried out a search warrant at 31-year-old Bernard Alford's residence in the 400 block of South Governors Avenue. Officers say they found 643.4 grams of marijuana, 89.7 grams of marijuana-based butane honey oil, 493 capsules of pure THC, 21 bags of heroin, 54.4 grams of MDMA and a stolen Smith and Wesson .38 Special with ammunition.

Alford was arrested and is charged with a slew of firearm and drug charges, including receiving a stolen firearm, possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, aggravated possession of marijuana in a tier one quantity and possession with intent to deliver MDMA in a tier four quantity.

He has been committed to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in default of a cash bond of $86,150, officials said.
