DOVER - Three males were arrested following a search warrant execution Tuesday, Dover Police spokesperson Master Cpl. Ryan Schmid said.
Dover residents Unique Trader, 19, Demetric Isabell, 18, and a 17-year-old male were all taken into custody at a residence in the Unit Block of North Governors Avenue at 1:52 p.m., authorities said. The Dover Police Street Crimes Unit was assisting Delaware Probation and Parole with a home visit on Mr. Trader, authorities said.
Police said a Smith and Wesson .40-caliber handgun and 3.8 grams of crack cocaine were located at the residence. A search warrant led to the discovery of an additional 3.1 grams of crack cocaine, 466.7 grams of marijuana and $810.
While seven other persons were initially taken into custody, police determined that they were not involved in the incident and they were released without charges, Cpl. Schmid said.
The defendants were all charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession with intent to deliver crack cocaine, and second-degree conspiracy, among other offenses.
Mr. Trader and Mr. Isabell were both committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $55,500 cash bail. The juvenile was committed to Stevenson House on $36,600 cash bail.
