Va. Men Arrested In Delaware On Drug Charges

CHRISTIANA, Del. (AP) -- Delaware State Police said they seized about two pounds of marijuana from two Virginia men during a traffic stop on Interstate 95.

Police say 18-year-old Christopher Harley of Centreville, Va., and 23-year-old Christopher Lancaster of Manassas, Va., were each charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana and other offenses.

Both men were taken to Young Correctional Institution. Harley is being held on $4,501 secured bail, and Lancaster was being held on $4,500 secured bail.

Police Cpl. Jeffrey Hale said Harley was the driver of the car that was stopped for speeding. He said Harley told the trooper that the car had been rented by his girlfriend.

While searching for the rental agreement, Hale said the trooper found bags of marijuana in the glove box, rear floorboard and trunk of the car.

Investigation Continues with Dog Poisoning Case

In Leesburg, VA, Harley, an 8-year-old beagle mix suddenly got violently ill last Thursday. The canine was rushed to Leesburg Veterinary Hospital after vomiting all over the house and not being able to stand up. Harley started to have seizures on Friday, and was not showing any signs of recovery. The beagle mix was put down that day as suggested by the veterinarian.

Harley’s owner found a 12 X 12 aluminum pan in his backyard which had an unidentifable yellow liquid inside it. An investigation was opened by Leesburg Police and Loudoun County Animal Care and Control. From initial tests conducted by the vet clinic, it was determined that the substance was likely a mix of antifreeze and some type of meat product. The pan is also being tested for fingerprints.

Once someone is convicted they could face up to five years in prison because in Virginia poisoning a dog can lead to charges of a Class Six Felony.
