Police: Seaford man stopped for traffic violation, drugs seized
HARRINGTON, Del. – Harrington Police arrested a Seaford man Monday evening after he allegedly tried to flee from officers.
We’re told just before 6:30 p.m., an officer stopped a vehicle on South DuPont Highway in the area of the Super 8 Motel for a traffic violation. Contact was made with the driver and sole occupant, 24-year-old Daquan Bailey, and during the stop, Bailey got out of the vehicle and fled on foot towards the Liberty Plaza Shopping Center.
A foot pursuit ensued, during which an officer discharged a department-issued taser on Bailey. When officers caught up to Bailey, he reportedly began resisting arrest, but was eventually taken into custody.
A subsequent search of a backpack that Bailey was carrying led to the recovery of one MDMA tablet, one Percocet tablet, 173 alprazolam tablets, 688.4 grams of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and more than $700 in suspected drug money.
Bailey was charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance in a tier 2 quantity, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, two counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest, and traffic violations.
He was later released after posting $11,302 secured bail.
