Dover Police arrested a man on drug charges after he ran from a traffic stop on Tuesday night.  At approximately 10:02PM, a Dover patrol officer observed a white Lincoln Towncar stopped in the roadway on S. Queen Street.  A computer check revealed that the car was unregistered as it began to drive away, so the officer conducted a traffic stop and contacted the driver, Travis Caldwell (34).  As the officer returned to his patrol vehicle to review Caldwell’s documents, Caldwell fled on foot from the vehicle.  The officer chased Caldwell and took him into custody behind a home on S. Queen Street.  Officers located 2 bags of cocaine weighing 15.8 grams total near where Caldwell was taken into custody.  He was later released after posting $37,175 secured bond on the following charges:
-Possession of Cocaine (Tier 3 Qty)
-Possession with Intent to Deliver Cocaine
-Resisting Arrest
-Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
-Multiple Traffic Offenses
