Lewes– The Delaware State Police have arrested 21-year-old Jordan E. Dixon of Felton on weapon and multiple traffic charges.
On Sunday, August 2, 2020, at approximately 2:08 p.m., a Trooper on routine patrol traveling north bound on Coastal Highway (SR 1) south of Dartmouth Drive, Lewes, observed a 1999 Tan Buick Century traveling on the roadway. A computer check revealed the vehicle did not have any insurance and the vehicle registration was suspended as a result. The Trooper attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle by activating its emergency equipment but the vehicle continued traveling and failed to stop. The operator of the vehicle, later identified as Dixon, committed multiple traffic violations as he failed to stop for the Trooper. Once the vehicle began traveling southbound on School Lane, Lewes, the Trooper observed the operator throw an unknown object from the operator’s side window of the vehicle before coming to a sudden stop.

Discovered during a search of the area where the object was seen thrown out the window, was a Taurus 9mm handgun with a loaded magazine discovered near the firearm.
