A traffic stop in Lincoln led to charges against two people this week.

Delaware State Police say a trooper on patrol ran a computer check on a vehicle in the area of Johnson Road and Front Street and determined the registered owner had a warrant out for arrest.

According to police a passenger in the vehicle, later identified as 29-year-old Joshua Witty of Lincoln, got out and tried to walk away, but complied when he was told to return. The driver, 46-year-old Angela Boone of Lincoln, was found to be wanted by Milford Police.

Boone was taken into custody without incident. Police say Witty tried to flee on foot into a wooded area and resisted arrest while tossing items into the brush.

Witty was taken into custody. State Police say a search of the area turned up heroin, marijuana, and heroin “wax folds.” Also, according to police, a search of Witty turned up some cocaine, and a search of the vehicle uncovered drug paraphernalia in the console.
