Newark – As a result of a month long investigation, members of the Delaware State Police Governor’s Task Force (GTF), have arrested a Philadelphia man on drug and weapons offenses.
Based on intelligence information gathered throughout the month of March 2018, GTF members were able to develop a silver Lincoln MKZ with Pennsylvania tags, as a vehicle suspected of being involved in illegal drug transactions that were taking place in the parking lots of businesses along the Churchman’s Road/Route 7 corridor.
At approximately 7:40 p.m., Monday, March 12, 2018, GTF members observed a silver Lincoln MKZ in the parking lot of Miller’s Ale House, located at 1323 Churchman’s Road, at which time they made contact with the driver, who was identified as Eric T. Dunn, 29, of Philadelphia. A search of Dunn and the vehicle, produced a large sum of suspected drug money, multiple rounds of 9mm ammunition along with a key for a motel room at the adjacent Days Inn, located at 900 Churchman’s Road.
Through further investigation Dunn was able to be linked to two rooms at the Days Inn which were subsequently searched. As a result of the combined searches of Dunn, the vehicle and the two motel rooms, the following was recovered:
Dunn was transported to Delaware State Police Troop 2 where he was arrested and formally charged with the following:
Dunn was committed to the Howard R. Young Correctional Institution in lieu of $159,750.00 cash bail.
The investigation also led to the identification of a second suspect, Iman M. Douglas, 38, also of Philadelphia, as being involved in the drug operation. Douglas is described as a black male, 6’4”, 200 lbs. Warrants are currently on file charging Douglas with the identical crimes as Dunn.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Douglas is asked to contact the Governor’s Task Force by calling 302-834-2620.
