Dover- The Delaware State Police arrest a Middletown man after a hit and run crash led to the discovery of a weapon and drugs in his vehicle.

The incident occurred on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at approximately 1:39 p.m. when Troopers were dispatched to North Dupont Highway (Rt.13) at Messina Hill Road for a reported hit and run crash.  Investigation into the crash revealed that a black ford F-150 had side struck a Ford Fusion while it was traveling in the right lane of Rt. 13.  After the impact, the Ford F-150 continued southbound on Rt. 13.  The driver of the Fusion was not injured as a result of this crash.  Moments later, calls were received that a black Ford F-150 was driving on three wheels and had pulled into a newly constructed commercial property off of Jerome Drive.  Troopers arrived at this location moments later and made contact with the operator, 22-year-old Marcos Vinicio Godoy of Middletown.

Upon contact with Godoy, an odor of marijuana was detected.  He was subsequently detained and a search of the vehicle was conducted.  The search led to the discovery of 12.3 grams of marijuana and an unloaded Smith & Wesson .40 caliber handgun with one magazine and 11 rounds of ammunition.

Godoy was transported back to Troop 9 where he was charged with Driving Under the Influence, Carrying a Concealed Deadly Weapon, Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony, Possession with Intent to Deliver, Possession of Marijuana, and other traffic related offenses.

Godoy was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court 7 and released on $25,775.00 unsecured bond.
