An argument led to counterfeit drug charges for a Milford man after police say he threatened someone with a knife.

According to the Milford Police Department, just before 3 p.m., Monday officers were called to a residence in the 200 block of South Washington Street for reports of an incident involving a knife.

Police arrived and learned that a verbal altercation at the home turned violent when 23-year-old Timothy D. Jarvis Jr., reportedly threatened the victim with a knife.

Jarvis fled the residence before police arrived, but was later apprehended during a traffic stop on South Washington Street where he was taken into custody without incident.

13.5 grams of K-2, a synthetic marijuana drug, was found in Jarvis’ possession as he was being taken into custody, according to police.

Jarvis was charged with Possession of a Controlled Counterfeit Substance, Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony, Aggravated Menacing, Possession of a Deadly Weapon by Person Prohibited, and Driving While Suspended.

He was committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on just over $69,000 secured bail.
