Car crash leads to arrest of wanted Dagsboro woman

1280 Vera Curtis

MILLSBORO, Del. – Delaware Stae Police say they arrested a wanted Delaware woman after she reportedly rear-ended another vehicle at a stop light Thursday afternoon.

Just after 3:30 p.m., a trooper conducting proactive patrol on School Lane observed an individual outside a vehicle in the eastbound lanes of travel. The trooper stopped to check on the individual’s welfare and discovered that the vehicle he was driving had been hit from behind by a Ford Fusion while stopped at a red light.

The trooper contacted the driver of the Fusion, identified as 41-year-old Vera Curtis, as well as three juveniles in the vehicle with her. A computer check revealed that Curtis had several warrants out for her arrest for failing to appear in court, and she was subsequently taken into custody.

An inventory search of her vehicle was conducted before being towed, resulting in the discovery of approximately .987 grams of heroin, four Buprenorphine Naloxone film packets, and drug paraphernalia.

Curtis was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance, three counts of endangering the welfare of a child, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving while suspended, driving while under the influence of a drug, and failure to have insurance identification in possession. She was issued a $5,700 unsecured bond.
