Officers Arrest Man on Drug Charges and Resisting Arrest After Traffic Stop in Dover – Town Square Delaware LIVE


Delaware State Police arrested a 34-year-old man George Brinkley of Dover, Delaware, on multiple drug charges and resisting arrest following a traffic stop in Dover this morning.

On April 6, 2024, at approximately 1:51 a.m., a patrol officer observed a white 2022 Chrysler Pacifica with Oklahoma license plates traveling at a high rate of speed on President Drive in the area of ​​Bay Road, Dover. As the trooper drove behind the Pacifica, he noticed that it was unable to maintain its lane as it continued to travel at a high rate of speed. The officer initiated a traffic stop when the Pacifica came to a stop in a residential driveway on President Drive. A black male driver and a black male passenger got out of the van and went into the apartment. The driver, later identified as George Brinkley, ignored the officer's verbal commands to stop and attempted to close the apartment door in front of the officer. Brinkley then ran out of the residence and fled on foot eastbound on President Drive. After a brief foot pursuit, Brinkley was taken into custody without incident. A search of Brinkley's person resulted in the discovery of $2,570 in his back pocket. Officers then conducted a search of the Pacifica and discovered approximately 0.714 grams of heroin packaged in 102 bags, approximately 17.9 grams of marijuana in a clear bag, two MDMA pills and one cyclobenzaprine hydrochloride pill.

A computer interrogation of Brinkley revealed that his license had been revoked. Brinkley was transported to Troop 3 where he was charged with the offenses listed below, arraigned in Justice of the Peace Court 7 and released on $12,552 unsecured bail.
