The Dover Police Department has arrested five individuals following a traffic stop and search warrant on Wednesday afternoon. At 3:42 p.m., officers observed Shabazz Barlow (28), of Marydel, DE, exit a residence in the unit block of South Queen Street and enter a vehicle. Officers knew that Barlow had an active Capias and as a result, members of the Street Crimes Unit conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle he entered. Upon stopping the vehicle, officers contacted the occupants who were identified as Barlow, Tyrese Bailey (21), of Dover, DE, and Trevor Bolling (24), of Cheswold, DE. Officers detected an odor of marijuana coming from inside of the vehicle and a vehicle search was conducted.
