Rehoboth man arrested on drug charges following traffic stop

BRIDGEVILLE, Del. – Delaware State Police arrested a Rehoboth Beach man Tuesday night after a traffic stop led to the discovery of drugs.

At around 10 p.m., members of the Governor’s Task Force (GTF) were on patrol in the Coverdale area when they heard loud music coming from a Hyundai Sonata that was traveling southbound on Coverdale Road in the area of Mill Park Drive. A traffic stop was subsequently initiated and officers detected marijuana inside the vehicle on contact with the driver, 25-year-old Malik Jarvis.

Officers then searched the vehicle, seizing a plastic container with approximately 443.10 grams of marijuana, as well as more than $900 in suspected drug money.

Jarvis was arrested and charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance in a tier 1 quantity, two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, fictitious or cancelled registration card, operation of an unregistered motor vehicle, and loud music or noise which is plainly audible from a distance of 50 feet or more from vehicle.

He was later released on $7,604 unsecured bond.
