Milford Traffic Stop Leads To Arrest Of Wanted Man

The Milford Police have arrested a man on multiple charges after a traffic stop led to the discovery of controlled substances, according to Milford Police Spokesman Sgt. Robert Masten.

On January 12, 2020, a Milford Police Officer conducting traffic enforcement on Coastal Highway (SR 1) in the area of the Route 36 overpass observed a vehicle traveling in excess of the posted speed limit.

When the officer pulled Dallas G. Taylor Jr., 46 of Milton, over he discovered that his license was suspended and that his vehicle had registration violations. During the investigation, the officer also found pills and MDMA, according to Masten.

The officer also learned that Taylor was wanted by Sussex County Family Court and the New Castle Court of Common Pleas.

He was subsequently arrested and charged with the following:

Two counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance
Driving While Suspended
Failure to Transfer Title, and Unregistered Motor Vehicle.

Taylor was presented at the Justice of the Peace Court #3, where bail was set at $600.00 unsecured. He was then committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on the outstanding warrants.
He is scheduled to appear at the Sussex County Court of Common Pleas in February for an arraignment.
