A Lewes man found to be in possession of a firearm and drugs has been arrested by Georgetown police.
On Wednesday, August 30, Georgetown officers observed two males loitering in a vehicle in the parking lot of the Dunbarton Oaks Apartment Complex. As they approached the vehicle, the passenger began to exit, at which time officers smelled an odor of marijuana. A search of the vehicle found a .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun in the center console, and a search of the driver, 25-year-old Tre Edwards, found 29 grams of marijuana.
Edwards was arrested for possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, possession of marijuana and loitering. He was later released on $3,300 unsecured bond.
