November 11, 2019

LEWES, Del. (AP) — Delaware State Police say a driver failed to signal a lane change, and a subsequent traffic stop found the driver to be in possession of heroin, marijuana, methamphetamine, opioids and prescription pills.

A police statement says a trooper pulled over 51-year-old Harry Johnson Jr. after witnessing the traffic violation and smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle. It say further investigation determined that Johnson was driving under the influence of drugs, and a search of his vehicle uncovered the drugs and drug paraphernalia.

WBOC-TV reports Johnson was arrested last week and charged with related offense including possession of a controlled substance with an intent to deliver. It’s unclear if Johnson has a lawyer. He was given a secured bond of about $80,000.
