Steven D. Verley

SEAFORD — A 28-year-old Millsboro man was charged with multiple drug and traffic related offenses, stemming from a July traffic stop, in which he allegedly fled from the police and in the process, authorities said Saturday.

According to Delaware State Police, Steven D. Verley’s abandoned vehicle last month was still occupied by his child, along with an assortment of drugs and drug paraphernalia. Warrants were issued for Mr. Verley’s arrest and he turned himself in at Troop 5 Friday, spokesman Master Cpl. Michael Austin said.

Charges included three counts of possession of a controlled substance, three counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, disregarding a police officers signal, and other traffic related offenses. Mr. Verley was arraigned in Justice of the Peace Court 3 and then committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $32,950 secured bail.
