Month long drug investigation results in two arrests
SEAFORD, Del. – The Delaware State Police Sussex Drug Unit, along with the Seaford Police Department, Sussex Governor’s Task Force, and the Special Operation Response Team wrapped up a month long drug investigation with two arrests on Tuesday.
Officials say the target of the drug investigation was 40-year-old Charlie Riddick of Seaford. Investigation revealed that Riddick was using two residences in Seaford, one in the 800 block of Douglas Street and one in the 800 block of Clementime Court to distribute illegal drugs.
A search and seizure warrant was obtained and executed at both residences. Riddick was located at the residence on Clementine Court and taken into custody without incident. When detectives went to search the residence in the 800 block of Douglas Street they made contact with 31-year-old Isiah Major of Selbyville, and learned that he was the one distributing the marijuana.
As a result of both search warrants, police seized an arsenal rifle, 60 armor piercing 5.56 rounds, a Glock 9mm handgun, 52 rounds of 9mm ammunition, approximately 91.58 grams of marijuana, and more than $800 in suspected drug money. Both firearms were found to be reported stolen out of Millersville, MD.
It was also learned through investigation that Riddick is prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition due to previous felony convictions.
Riddick was charged with four counts of possession of a firearm or ammunition by a person prohibited and two counts of receiving a stolen firearm. He is currently being held at the Sussex Correctional Institution on $45,000 cash only bond.
Major was charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and was released on his own recognizance.
