Troopers arrest suspect on weapons, drug charges in Milford

MILFORD – The Delaware State Police Sussex Governor’s Task Force (GTF) with the assistance of the U.S. Marshals, Sussex Drug Unit, the Milford Police Department, and Delaware State Police Aviation Unit arrest a suspect on multiple weapon and drug charges.

On Friday, March 9, at approximately 11:20 a.m., members of the Sussex GTF responded to a residence on Carlisle Lane, Milford, for an unrelated investigation. As members of GTF were preparing to leave the area, a light blue 2005 Acura MDX occupied by two Hispanic males, pulled up to a Detective and inquired about police presence.  A strong odor of marijuana was detected and a marijuana cigarette was observed in plain view. As Detectives asked the occupants to exit the vehicle, the operator placed the vehicle into drive and fled the scene.  At approximately 12:02 p.m. the vehicle was located abandoned and unsecured on McColley Street, Milford.  A search warrant was obtained for the vehicle, which led to the discovery of 507 bags of heroin (approximately 3.549 grams), five bags of marijuana packaged for sale totaling 16.31 grams, two .40 caliber magazines containing a total of 24 rounds, and a single .22 caliber round.

Through investigative measures, Detectives were able to identify the operator of the vehicle as 25-year-old Carlos Feliciano-Concepcion of Houston Texas.

On Thursday, March 15, 2018, members of the Sussex GTF continued follow up on locating Feliciano with the assistance of the U.S. Marshals, Sussex Drug Unit, and the Milford Police Department. Information was received that Feliciano was staying at a residence in the unit block of Causey Avenue in Milford and operating a gold in color Chrysler 300.  While in the area, units observed Feliciano leaving the residence operating a gold in color Chrysler 300.  The Delaware State Police Aviation Unit maintained a visual on the vehicle until a traffic stop was conducted and subsequently Feliciano was taken into custody without incident.  During a search of Feliciano, he was found to be in possession of five bags of heroin and over $500.00 in suspected drug proceeds.  A search of the vehicle was conducted and yielded 7.90 grams of marijuana, a loaded Glock .40 caliber handgun, three extended capacity magazines with a total of 59 rounds loaded in the magazines, a ledger, and one .22 caliber round.

Feliciano was transported to Troop 4 where he was charged with two counts of carrying a concealed deadly weapon, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, possession of a controlled substance in tier three, three counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance in tier two, possession of Marijuana, three counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, disregarding a police officer’s signal and criminal trespassing in the third degree.
