Tyree M. Bordley was arrested Jan. 23

Members of the state’s Probation and Parole division and the Troop 3 Governor's Task Force have arrested a Felton man in connection with two drug-related robberies.

Delaware State Police spokeswoman Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe said 26-year-old Tyree M. Bordley was arrested Tuesday, Jan. 23.

Officers went to Bordley’s residence in the 700 block of Peach Basket Road in connection with two drug-related robberies in which drug buyers were robbed at gunpoint. Police obtained a search warrant based on their investigations into those robberies, Jaffe said.

Bordley is on Level III probation for prior offenses, allowing police to conduct an administrative search of his residence, she added.

Bordley was immediately taken into custody and turned over to state police on the robbery warrant. A search turned up a plastic bag containing 2,743 bags, or 19.201 grams, of heroin.

Bordley is charged with possession of a controlled substance, intent to deliver a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Charges from the initial robbery warrant included aggravated menacing, two counts of first-degree robbery, wearing a disguise during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a person convicted of a felony, possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, and second-degree conspiracy.

Bordley has been committed to the Vaughn Correctional Center, Smyrna, on a $155,000 cash bond.
