Convicted felon nabbed with car-load of alleged Dirtbags, loaded gun and lots of heroin treats ready for sale
NEWARK, DEL. – Do the police really expect that a convicted felon packing a loaded handgun and ninety nicely packaged consumer packages of heroin would give his correct name when requested? Do suspects in shoplifting really expect to lollygag down a highway on a Sunday evening unmolested by police when the alleged Dirtbag morons are driving an old heap that was spotted as a getaway car? These questions and more were answered by the Delaware State Police, who provided the following information:
