DOVER — A 25-year-old Camden man was charged with drug offenses following a Wednesday traffic stop, Delaware State Police spokeswoman Master Cpl. Heather Pepper said.

James Palmer was driving a Honda Accord on U.S. 13 at approximately 12:44 p.m. when stopped for a vehicle-registration violation, according to authorities. A strong odor of marijuana was detected from inside the vehicle, and a probable-cause search ensued, police said.

Approximately 965.29 grams of marijuana was located inside the vehicle, Cpl. Pepper said.

Mr. Palmer was taken into custody without incident and charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, failure to have insurance identification in possession and failure to transfer title and registration. He was arraigned in Justice of the Peace Court 2, Rehoboth Beach, and released on a $5,700 unsecured bond.
