WILMINGTON, DE — Wilmington Police have arrested a man on several drug-related allegations.

On February 13, around 1:20 p.m., members of the Drug, Organized Crime, and Vice Division were conducting surveillance in the 1200 block of West 4th Street. They observed a man, later identified as 34-year-old Edward Robinson, allegedly engaged in drug-related activity.

Upon making contact with Robinson, police took him into custody without incident. Officers reportedly found Robinson in possession of 3.1 grams of crack cocaine and drug paraphernalia.

Robinson has been charged with possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver, tampering with physical evidence, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
