Frederica man charged following traffic stop

MILFORD, Del. – Milford Police arrested a man on several charges following a traffic stop Tuesday night.

Just after 10:30 p.m., an officer stopped a vehicle on Bay Road after observing an equipment violation. After making contact with the driver, identified as 29-year-old Shawn Colson of Frederica, the officer learned that he was wanted by Sussex County Family Court and the Justice of the Peace Court #2. The officer then found a handgun in the vehicle and it was determined that Colson’s drivers license was suspended.

Colson was subsequently arrested and charged with carrying a concealed deadly weapon, driving while suspended, failure to have insurance identification in possession, failure to have registration card in possession, failure to have two head lamps, possession of suspended license, and failure to report change of address.

He is currently being held at the Sussex Correctional Institution.
