NEWARK, Del. (CBS) – A Delaware man who was pulled over for a vehicle registration violation is now facing drug charges.
On Thursday, July 5th at 10:50 p.m., a New Castle County police officer was patrolling the area of Phyllis Drive and Darwin Drive in New Castle when he spotted a vehicle with a registration violation. The officer pulled the driver over and identified him as Ralph Lloyd, a 33-year-old from Newark.

A search of Lloyd’s vehicle revealed two more pill bottles full of Oxycodone and Opana pills that were hidden underneath the driver’s seat and nearly $500 of suspected drug money.
Ralph Lloyd has been charged with drug possession, driving while suspended, failure to have insurance and other related offenses.
