Troopers Arrest Man for Drug Offenses and Resisting Arrest Following Traffic Stop in Dover

Delaware State Police arrested 34-year-old George Brinkley of Dover, Delaware, for multiple drug offenses and resisting arrest following a traffic stop in Dover early this morning.

On April 6, 2024, at approximately 1:51 a.m., a trooper on patrol observed a white 2022 Chrysler Pacifica with Oklahoma registration traveling on President Drive in the area of Bay Road, Dover, at a high rate of speed. As the trooper traveled behind the Pacifica, he observed it fail to maintain its lane as it continued to travel at a high rate of speed. The trooper initiated a traffic stop as the Pacifica came to a stop in a residential driveway on President Drive. A black male driver and a black male passenger exited the van and began walking into the residence. The driver, later identified as George Brinkley, disregarded the trooper’s verbal commands to stop and attempted to close the residence’s door on the trooper. Brinkley then ran out of the residence and fled on foot eastbound on President Drive. After a brief foot pursuit, Brinkley was taken into custody without incident. A search of Brinkley’s person led to the discovery of $2,570 in his back pocket. Troopers subsequently conducted a search of the Pacifica, and discovered approximately 0.714 grams of heroin packaged in 102 baggies, approximately 17.9 grams of marijuana in a clear baggie, two MDMA pills, and one cyclobenzaprine hydrochloride pill.

A computer inquiry of Brinkley revealed his license is suspended. Brinkley was taken to Troop 3, where he was charged with the offenses listed below, arraigned by Justice of the Peace Court 7, and released on a $12,552 unsecured bond.
