A traffic stop led to a heroin bust in Delaware.
On Monday a Delaware State Trooper on patrol on Concord Road and Haven Drive in Seaford spotted a silver Cadillac fail to signal after coming to a stop on Haven. The trooper stopped the car and spoke with the driver, identified as 20-year-old Hunter Waller of Laurel. Sharmayne Teagle, 22, and Jermar Thompson, 26, both from Seaford, were passengers inside, according to investigators.
The trooper soon learned Waller only had a learner's permit and none of the passengers had a valid license, according to police.
