Wanted suspect arrested during traffic stop, facing new charges

DOVER, Del. – A wanted man was arrested by Dover Police Tuesday night after he was seen riding as a passenger in a vehicle.

Police say that just after 10 PM, officers on patrol observed a wanted suspect, identified as 27-year-old Darren Holden, as a passenger in a vehicle. A traffic stop was initiated, and on initial contact with police, Holden reportedly provided a false name.

Officers eventually took Holden into custody, but say he resisted attempts to place him in a police vehicle.

Holden was also found to be in possession of .2 grams of marijuana, 3.53 grams of heroin, and packaging materials. The driver, 28-year-old Juliana Hansley-Thomas, was found to be in possession of .6 grams of marijuana.

Hansley-Thomas was released without bond on a single possession of marijuana charge and a traffic offense.

Holden was charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin, possession of heroin, possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest, criminal impersonation, and capias. He is currently being held at the Sussex Correctional Institution on $67,000 cash bond.
