Two arrested on drug charges following car chase
ELLENDALE, Del. – Delaware State Police arrested two men early Sunday morning after a car chase led to the discovery of drugs.
At around 3:30 a.m., a trooper stopped a white Crown Victoria on southbound Route 113 in the area of Fleatown Road for driving at a high rate of speed. The driver initially pulled over and stopped, and prior to making contact with the driver, the trooper discovered that the registration for the vehicle came back as a Ford Fusion, not a Ford Crown Victoria.
As the trooper began to approach the vehicle, the driver accelerated and drove away in a reckless manner. The vehicle was then seen pulling into a private driveway off of Fleatown Road, at which point a traffic stop was initiated. After making contact with the driver, 20-year-old Jordan Dixon, and passenger, 20-year-old Parris Dixon, it was learned that Jordan did not have a valid license.
A subsequent investigation led to Jordan being found in possession of approximately 27.90 grams of marijuana, approximately 5.64 grams of crack cocaine, and drug paraphernalia. Parris was found in possession of approximately 5.30 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Jordan was charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, disregarding a police officer signal, second degree conspiracy, possession of drug paraphernalia, reckless driving, driving without a valid license, operation of an unregistered motor vehicle, and other traffic related offenses.
Parris was charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, second degree conspiracy, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Both men were released on personal recognizance.
