GEORGETOWN, DEL. – A load of pot and a pile of cash adds up to one thing. People in Delaware like to use drugs and pay an opportunist for their passion. Delaware State Police report that a Seaford man was in and out of jail in a single day but had to leave his stash and cash behind as evidence for his pending criminal trial.
The incident occurred on Tuesday, April 3, 2018, at approximately 10:25 a.m. when a Trooper observed a red Ford Taurus traveling eastbound on Hardscrabble Road, above the posted speed limit. As the Trooper activated his emergency equipment, the operator, identified as 20-year-old Cory R. Mister of Seaford continued traveling eastbound.
