Crash leads to drug and gun arrest in Milton

MILTON, Del. – Delaware State Police arrested a Lewes woman Thursday morning after a vehicle crash led to the discovery of drugs and a loaded handgun.

We’re told that shortly after 7 a.m., troopers were called to Cool Spring Road, south of Milton, for a reported vehicle collision. When troopers arrived, they observed a Ford pickup truck hit a utility pole with wires down across the roadway.

Troopers then met with the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle, 25-year-old Tori Luff, as she was out of the vehicle and sitting down outside. She reportedly told police that she was not injured and had refused medical services on scene.

A probable cause search of the vehicle was then conducted, resulting in the recovery of multiple rounds of .40 caliber S&W, a handgun, a glass vile with crack cocaine weighing .5 grams, along with drug paraphernalia and 3.8 grams of marijuana. A DUI investigation was also launched as Luff appeared to strongly under the influence of an unknown narcotic.

Tori then requested to go to the hospital.
