Bridgeville man arrested on numerous drug charges

BRIDGEVILLE, Del. – Delaware State Police say a curfew violation led to the discovery of drugs late Thursday night.

Members of the Sussex Governors Task Force and Probation and Parole responded to the 11000 block of Evans Drive shortly after 11 PM to conduct a curfew check on a probationer. When police arrived, they found 36-year-old Maurice Cannon sitting in a vehicle in his driveway, which is a violation of his curfew. Police also detected a strong odor of marijuana on contact with Cannon.

Police asked Cannon to step out of the vehicle so a search of his vehicle could be conducted. Cannon was found to be in possession of a large amount of cash, marijuana, and a small amount of cocaine. Probation officers then searched Cannon’s residence, where they found 390 bags of heroin.

Cannon was arrested and charged with third offense possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance in a Tier 2 quantity, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, and three counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Cannon is currently being held at the Sussex Correctional Institution on $90,800 cash only bond.
