Harrington Man Arrested In Narcotics Bust

The Narcotics Division of the Milford Police Department have arrested Joseph A. Levan, 25, of Harrington and charged him with Possession of a Controlled Substance (Heroin), Possession with the Intent to Deliver Heroin, Criminal Mischief and Felony Resisting Arrest following a month-long investigation.

Stemming from a previous investigation and search warrant, Narcotics Division detectives seized 54 bags of Heroin, surveillance equipment, drug paraphernalia items and an undisclosed amount of money from a location in the 200 block of North Street.

During this additional investigation, detectives report making contact with Levan in his vehicle in the area of Abbotts Pond Rd, where they attempted to take Levan into custody when he refused to exit his vehicle. Police report that Levan then used his vehicle to ram the K-9 vehicle (twice) with the K-9 officer and his K-9 partner (dog) still in the vehicle. Levan’s vehicle became inoperable. Levan was removed from the vehicle by officers and taken into custody. Levan was reported to be in possession of 130 baggies (5.2 grams) of Heroin.

The K-9 officer was transported to Milford Bayhealth Hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries and later released. The K-9 did not sustain any injuries. The K-9 patrol vehicle had heavy front end damage (totaling several thousand dollars). Levan was arraigned through JP3 and was committed to SCI in default $290,000 cash bond and an additional $50,000 cash bond from Probation and Parole.
