Terrell J. Johnson, when taken into custody at a residence in Laurel, was found to be in possession of 663 bags of heroin, 1.2 grams of crack cocaine, 1.5 grams of marijuana and a large amount of suspected illegal drug sale proceeds, Seaford Police Department spokesman Senior Cpl. Eric Chambers said.

Johnson was charged with: Possession with the Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance (two counts); Disregarding a Police Officers Signal; Possession of a Controlled Substance (two counts); Possession of Marijuana; Reckless Endangering 2nd Degree; Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (three counts); Driving While Suspended or Revoked; Child Not Properly Restrained and eight other various traffic offenses.

According to Sr. Cpl. Chambers, a Seaford police officer at 11:40 a.m. April 28 observed Johnson operating a vehicle on North Street in Seaford.

With knowledge that Johnson had several capiases for his arrest, the officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop. However, Johnson refused to pull over. During this time Johnson never drove above the posted speed limits, Sr. Cpl. Chamber said.  Seaford officers continued to follow Johnson into the town limits of Laurel, where officers from the Laurel Police Department provided assistance.

Officers followed Johnson to a residence in Laurel which is where he surrendered to police. At this time, officers learned that Johnson had his four-year-old daughter in the vehicle and he had driven to a residence so that she could be turned over to family members, Sr. Cpl. Chambers said.

Johnson was charged and arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court and committed to the Department of Corrections in lieu of $68,115 secured bail.
