Dover – The Delaware State Police have arrested two Dover residents after a brief pursuit led to the discovery of illegal drugs.

The incident occurred around 5:03 p.m. Tuesday March 21, 2017 as a trooper on patrol in the area of the Dover Toll Plaza observed a 2017 black Chevrolet Impala traveling southbound on Korean War Veteran’s Memorial Highway (SR1) in an erratic manner.  When the trooper pulled behind the Impala and attempted to perform a traffic stop, the car aggressively increased its speed and exited SR1 southbound onto westbound Puncheon Run.  The Chevrolet continued to pass other vehicles on the roadway and upon approaching South DuPont Highway (US13), failed to negotiate the right turn to travel southbound.  The vehicle exited the west side of the highway and crashed into three parked vehicles for sale in the parking lot of Hertrich Nissan of Dover, located at 1378 South DuPont Highway.

Collins, 37 of Dover, remained at the scene and was taken into custody without incident.  A search of the Chevy Impala revealed two plastic bags containing 126.07 grams of crack cocaine.
