Delaware State Police arrested 25-year-old Trevon Majette, of Chesapeake, Virginia, for weapon and drug offenses following a traffic stop that occurred in New Castle Monday evening.

On October 23, 2023, at approximately 6:00 p.m., a trooper on patrol was traveling northbound on Route 1 in the area of Wrangle Hill Road next to a white Ford Edge. The trooper initiated a traffic stop after observing the driver of the Ford using a cell phone while holding it in his right hand. Upon making contact with the driver and sole occupant, identified as Trevon Majette, the trooper smelled a strong odor of marijuana emanating from the car. A DSP Narcotics Canine scanned the Ford and positively alerted to the presence of narcotics. A search of the car led to the discovery of a concealed handgun loaded with an extended magazine, several rounds of ammunition, approximately 3.49 grams of marijuana, and $13,500 in suspected drug dealing proceeds (pictured below).
