Dover Police, assisting Delaware Probation and Parole officers, arrested a man and a woman on drug and weapons charges at the Persimmon Tree Apartments on Tuesday.

Dover Police officials said they went to the apartment complex on a home visit on January 14, 2020, for 23-year old Javon Pollard who was on pre-trial probation.

Police say they found Pollard with 23-year old Shyasia Hood in a vehicle in front of the apartment building and detected a strong odor of marijuana.

The pair were arrested without incident.

A search of an apartment turned up a .22 caliber handgun and ammo, crack, pot and $2,500 in alleged drug money.

Both were committed to prison under $67,000 bond--Pollard to Sussex Correctional Institution and Hood to the Delores J. Baylor Women's Correctional Institution.

Charges for both include possession of a firearm by a person prohibited.
