NEW CASTLE, Del. — Authorities seized a stash of marijuana and cash early Tuesday morning at the Delaware Memorial Bridge.
At approximately 12:30 a.m., Delaware River and bay Authority police officers observed a green Ford Crown Victoria making unsafe lane changes while traveling on the westbound span of the Delaware Memorial Bridge.
DRBA officers pulled the vehicle over in the vicinity of the toll plaza. Neither the driver, Connor Davis, 20, of Salisbury, Md., nor his passenger, Kane Lewis, 19, of Delmar, Md., could provide identification to authority officers.
Due to conflicting stories provided by Davis, DRBA police officers contacted the Wilmington Police Department for K-9 assistance. K-9 Neo and his handler responded and conducted a walk-around sniff of the vehicle.
Neo indicated positively to the left rear of the vehicle’s truck. A cardboard box containing five one pound bags of suspected marijuana — each vacuum sealed — was located, police said. Additionally, U.S. currency in the amount of $2,012 was located in the trunk compartment and on the driver. The currency was seized and placed in evidence.
The two were charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession of a deadly weapon during commission of a felony, and conspiracy second degree drug paraphernalia, authorities said.
Davis and Lewis were arraigned and are being held in lieu of $92,000 each.
