Goode Arrested on Weapons and Drug Charges


Early Monday morning Delaware State Police investigated a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot of the Houston Volunteer Fire House after hours.  State Police on patrol around 12:30 a.m. observed an unoccupied Ford Crown Victoria parked with its trunk open. 
The Trooper peered into the trunk and observed several firearms located inside.  An additional search of the Ford vehicle resulted in the seizure of 210 grams of marijuana, digital scales, a .22 caliber Kel-Tec rifle, 12 gauge Maverick shotgun and a 12 gauge Mossberg shotgun. 
A subsequent inquiry into the firearm’s serial numbers identified the Kel-Tec rifle was stolen from a residence in Wyoming Delaware and the Maverick shotgun from a residence in Delaware City.  (Wyoming and Delaware City Police Departments investigated these thefts).  Additionally the barrels to the weapons had been sawed off. 
State Troopers identified Jhavon R. Goode of Milford as the registered owner of the unoccupied vehicle.  Goode’s vehicle was initially towed after unsuccessful attempts to locate him.  State Police apprehended Goode after he dialed 911 to report his vehicle as being stolen.
Goode was taken into custody in Houston and searched by State Troopers who located an additional 6 grams of marijuana, shotgun shells and $575.00 cash on his possession.  Goode was subsequently arrested for weapons and drug charges then remanded to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $99,000.00 secured bond.
