Two Rehoboth Beach men face drug and weapons charges after a traffic stop Nov. 27 on Route 1.
Police were sent to the Royal Farms on Route 1 and 24 for a report of a car nearly striking another, and found 21-year-old Ezekial T. Winner and 30-year-old Daevon Harmon, both of Rehoboth Beach, inside the car, said Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe of the Delaware State Police.
Harmon gave police a fake name, she said, and police found drugs and weapons inside the car. A computer check revealed Winner was a person prohibited from possessing a weapon and Harmon had active capiases, Jaffe said.
Inside the car, she said, police found two large, handheld sword-like knives, a rifle, about 2.1 grams of crack cocaine and drug paraphernalia. After police took the men to Troop 7, she said, Harmon was found concealing about .182 grams of heroin on his person.
Winner was charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of firearm/destructive weapon within 10 years of prior conviction of any felony, carrying a concealed deadly weapon, possession of a controlled or counterfeit substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Harmon was charged with tampering with physical evidence, criminal impersonation, possession of a controlled or counterfeit substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Both men were arraigned and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in default of secured bond, Winner on $16,000 and Harmon on $5,000.
