Police report Shawn A. Wright, 31, did not have a driver's license.
Troopers with the Delaware State Police arrested a suspect Friday afternoon after a traffic stop near Cheswold lead to the discovery of drugs.
Division spokesman Sgt. Richard Bratz said the incident took place at about 2:02 p.m. April 13 as a trooper spotted a tan Nissan Altima with tinted front windows on Route 13, north of State Road 41.
A computer check showed it did not have a waiver for the tinted windows.
The trooper learned the driver, identified as Shawn A. Wright, 31, of Baltimore, did not have a valid driver’s license. A woman also was in the car as a passenger, as were two children, one of who was not in a child seat, Bratz reported.
A search of the Altima turned up numerous bags of marijuana, totaling 134 grams, some of which was within reach of both children. This could have severely injured the children if ingested, Bratz said.
Wright is charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, possession of marijuana with an aggravating factor, driving without a license and operating a vehicle with improper window tinting. He was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court 2 and released after posting a $503 secured bond.
He also was issued a no-contact order with the children.
