Drug dealing arrest in Bridgeville

BRIDGEVILLE — A 28-year-old Bridgeville man was arrested Wednesday after allegedly seen conducting drug transactions in the area, Delaware State Police spokeswoman Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe said.

A two-month investigation led to charges against Jevontae L. Dale, authorities said. Police determined that Mr. Dale was allegedly selling narcotics from his vehicle, a black 2010 Nissan Altima, while it was parked along Meadowlark Drive. As a result, a search warrant was obtained for Mr. Dale and his vehicle.

Mr. Dale was seen walking away from his vehicle in the area of Church and North streets and taken into custody without incident, police said.
