Trooper Say This Man Had Drugs, A Gun, Cash But No Clothes

Delaware State Police arrested a man on drugs and weapons charges following a crash investigation Sunday night, according to Public Information Officer, Senior Corporal Jason Hatchell.

Hatchell said on May 15, 2022, at approximately 11:38 p.m., troopers responded to the area of 2545 Pulaski Highway in Newark for a single-vehicle crash investigation. Upon arrival troopers observed a male subject unclothed standing in the roadway.

The subject, identified as Tyree Jordan, 36, of Elkton, Maryland, was also determined to be the operator of the vehicle and under the influence of an unknown substance, according to Hatchell. Jordan was taken into custody without incident and transported to Christiana Hospital for medical treatment. A subsequent search of his vehicle led to the discovery of two loaded 9mm handguns, approximately 2.24 grams of cocaine, approximately 22.87 grams of crack cocaine, approximately .46 grams of methamphetamine, and approximately .385 grams of heroin, 10 Alprazolam pills, and over $2,000 in suspected drug proceeds said Hatchell. A computer inquiry also revealed Jordan is a person prohibited from possessing a weapon.
