Two people have been arrested on drug and firearms charges after a traffic stop by Dover Police Tuesday morning.  Police stopped a car driven by 29 year old Larry Benson and smelled marijuana coming from inside the vehicle.  When officers tried to arrest Benson and the passenger, 26 year old Makia Benson, they became disorderly and uncooperative.  However Makia Benson kicked equipment in the vehicle, tried to spit at officers and caused cuts to an officer’s arm as they tried to subdue her.   Both face multiple charges and are free on bond.
