Delaware Driver Charged With Drug Possession After A Wild Chase

Posted: Updated:
WILMINGTON, De. -

A driver was cited for drug possession after a collision with a police cruiser that sent one officer to the hospital with injures Thursday night.

The incident occurred at approximately 11:00 p.m. as a fully marked Wilmington Police cruiser was responding to a priority complaint with emergency equipment activated. The cruiser, operated by a 36 year old 13 year veteran of the police department, was traveling west on W. 2nd Street through the intersection of N. Clayton Street. A northbound 1999 Honda Civic, operated by Ian Thomas of Wilmington, proceeded through a green light at the intersection and struck the cruiser on the left front side. The Honda then stuck a 2001 Dodge Durango parked on the south side of the 1600 block of W. 2nd Street before coming to a stop.

Ian Thomas then exited his vehicle and attempted to discard 19 bags of heroin and two hypodermic needles. Officers took Thomas into custody and located a small bag of crack cocaine on his person. The passenger of the police cruiser, a 27 year old officer in his first year with the department, was treated for a neck injury at Wilmington Hospital and released.

Thomas was arraigned at JP Court 11 and released after posting $150 secured bail

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
