Mr. Tucker was stopped by State Troopers along Route 1 in Milton at about 2:20pm. Delaware State Troopers stated they came across the heroin after detecting the scent of marijuana coming from his car. After being questioned about the smell, Tucker handed over a plastic bag from the vehicle’s center console containing a couple of grams of marijuana, according to police.
