Drug Investigation Leads to Man Wanted For Shooting

Criminal Division | Department of Justice | Department of Justice Press Releases | Date Posted: Friday, January 3, 2020



Deputy Attorney General Rebecca Anderson secured a guilty plea and prison sentence for a man wanted for a shooting in Seaford, arrested while police were investigating illegal drug activity in Bridgeville. Teron West, 33, of Seaford, was arrested in July 2019, when members of the Delaware State Police Sussex County Governor’s Task Force executed a search warrant at a home in the 200 block of Main Street in Bridgeville. Police found West, who provided them with a false name, and also discovered large quantities of drugs, including more than 50 grams of cocaine. Once getting his proper identification, officers learned West had been on the run since the previous November when he fired several shots at the vehicle of a man he was fighting with on Park Drive in Seaford. West, barred from having a gun because of prior felony drug convictions, pleaded guilty to Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited, Drug Dealing, and Criminal Impersonation. A Superior Court judge sentenced West to 18 months in prison, followed by 6 months of either home confinement or work release, then 1 year of probation.
