The Delaware State Police arrested 30-year-old Aaron Goodman of Millsboro, Delaware on numerous gun charges following a traffic stop in Delmar earlier this morning.

On May 26, 2023, at approximately 2:03 a.m., a trooper on patrol observed a red Dodge pickup truck traveling eastbound on Line Road east of Stable Lane. The trooper saw that the truck had dark window tinting but did not have a tint waiver on file with the Division of Motor Vehicles. The trooper attempted to stop the truck, but the driver disregarded the trooper’s lights and siren. The operator continued driving away for over a mile before finally stopping on Pepper Box Road, where he was taken into custody without further incident.

The trooper learned that the driver, identified as Aaron Goodman, had several firearms in his vehicle. A truck search led to the recovery of three loaded handguns, two assault rifles, a body armor plate carrier, and numerous magazines and rounds of ammunition. The trooper also found three baggies of suspected heroin that Goodman had attempted to discard and hide in the back seat of the police vehicle.

Goodman was taken to Troop 5 and charged with the following offenses:

  • Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony (Felony)
  • Possession of a Firearm While Possessing a Controlled Substance (Felony) – 5 counts
  • Tampering With Evidence (Felony)
  • Disregarding a Police Officer Signal (Felony)
  • Resisting Arrest
  • Possession of a Controlled Substance
  • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
  • Operating a Vehicle With Improper Window Tinting

Goodman was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Court 3 and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on a $73,150 secured bond.
