Officials: Drug Dealer Found With 185 Bags Of Heroin Gets 3 Years In Prison

A Dover man targeted in a drug investigation after selling heroin to an undercover police officer was sentenced to prison.

Deputy Attorney General Gregory Babowal secured the sentence for 26-year-old Javon Young. In January 2019, members of the State Police Kent County Drug Unit and Kent County Governor’s Task Force saw Young driving a car from which he sold the drugs, and knowing Young did not have a driver’s license, attempted to pull him over.

Young refused to stop and led police on a chase that ended after Young collided with a police cruiser. Young, who had 185 bags of heroin when taken into custody, pleaded guilty in May to Drug Dealing, Drug Dealing a Counterfeit Controlled Substance, and Disregarding a Police Officer. A Superior Court judge sentenced Young to 3 years in prison followed by 1 year of either work release or home confinement, then 1 year of probation, and fined him $575.
