A month-long investigation into drug dealing led Delaware State Police to a Walmart parking lot. And the suspects led police on pursuits on foot and by vehicle.
The Delaware State Police Kent County Drug Unit tracked down Dover residents Jaleel Wayman and Robert Knox, both 19, to the parking lot of the Walmart store in Camden, Delaware on Monday afternoon.
When detectives approached the car, Wayman darted off on foot. State Police said officers grabbed him a short time later without further incident. As officers tried to get Knox from the car, he drove off leading officers on a high-speed pursuit along Thomas Harmon Drive where Knox ran stop signs before finally surrendering.
Once police got both men into custody, they found 17 grams of MDMA, 1.5 grams of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and more than $2,000 worth of cash believed to belong to Wayman in the car.
Wayman, who police say was in violation of his parole, faces a slew of drug counts and was sent to jail on $86,000 bond. Knox, faces a drug paraphernalia count as well as resisting arrest, drug possession, criminal mischief and driving violations. He was sent to county jail on $25,600 bond.
