Heroin dealers may wish to take refresher driving courses in order to stay out of the pokey
DOVER, DEL. (Sept. 13, 2014) A Felton woman may wish she had stopped for a stop sign at New Castle Avenue. But she didn’t and Dover Police officers took note of her failure to obey a stop sign in the middle of the day and it all went downhill for her from there.
Officers from the Dover police Department’s Safe Streets Unit report that they have arrested a Felton woman after finding heroin during a traffic stop. Officers observed 24-year-old Angela Tribbitt fail to stop at a stop sign in the area of New Castle Avenue and River Road at 2:00PM on Tuesday, September 9th.
As officers approached the vehicle, they could smell a strong odor of marijuana. When Tribbitt was asked to hand the officers her license, officers observed a bag of marijuana inside her purse.
