Dover- Delaware State Police have arrested a Dover man after he was found to be in possession of a loaded gun and drugs during a traffic stop on Friday.

The incident occurred at approximately 10:40 a.m. on Friday, April 21, 2017, as a trooper on routine patrol was conducting speed enforcement on southbound SR1 approximately .5 miles south of White Oak Road, Dover. It was at this time that the trooper observed that a white Nissan Pathfinder was traveling well above the posted speed limit and conducted a vehicle stop of the car. As the trooper made contact with the operator and sole occupant of the car, later identified as Dynzel L. Reed, 26, he detected the odor of marijuana coming from the interior of the car. Reed was then asked to exit his vehicle and after questioning by troopers, he admitted to being in possession of marijuana. A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed a black duffel bag containing 19.6 grams of powder cocaine, 1.3 grams of crack cocaine, 296 grams of marijuana, 4 ecstasy pills, 16 cyclobenzaprine hydrochloride (Flexeril) pills, a loaded 9 mm. Beretta semi-automatic handgun, additional ammunition, and $3,281.00 is suspected drug sale proceeds.

Dynzel Reed was transported to Troop 3 where he was arrested and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance in a Tier 4 Quantity, Possession with the Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance in a Tier 4 Quantity, Carrying a Concealed Firearm, Possession of  a Firearm with a Controlled Substance, Possession of a Controlled Substance in a Tier 1 Quantity, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Illegal Possession of a Prescription Drug, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Speeding.
