SEAFORD, DEL. — Delaware State Police Master Corporal Jeffrey R. Hale reports that troopers have arrested a Laurel women after she was found to be in possession of drugs during a traffic stop in Seaford.

The incident began on Sunday, December 18, 2016, at approximately 1:50 a.m., as two Delaware State Troopers were on patrol in the area of Sussex Highway and Bethel Concord Road, Seaford. It was at this time that the troopers observed a green Chevrolet Tahoe, which was traveling in a northbound direction on Sussex Highway, fail to remain within its lane of travel.

A computer check of Dilworth was conducted where it was learned that she was wanted by the Laurel Police Department.

She was then transported to the Laurel Police Department, where upon their arrival, a female Delaware State Trooper was contacted to conduct a more extensive search of Dilworth.
