Drug bust blotter: Pot dealing SEPTA driver, guns and dope in Del.

    Incidents in Pennsylvania and Delaware have resulted in arrests for drugs and guns.

    A sting operation has led to the arrest of a 43-year-old SEPTA bus driver who according to authorities allegedly picked up over 100 pounds of high-grade marijuana in Southwest Philadelphia during his lunch break.

    According to Philly.com, Yvens Daudier, a New Jersey resident, was wearing his SEPTA uniform when he was arrested. Officers found two large bales of marijuana totaling 104 pounds, Ziplock bags, an electronic cash counter, and a Breitling watch in Daudier’s personal vehicle. They found evidence in his work locker that Daudier was in the process of leasing a Bentley, and at his New Jersey home they found $10,000 in cash and a semi-automatic pistol.

     

    Daudier is being charged with conspiracy, possession with intent to deliver and other charges, and is being held on $2 million bail.

     

    In Delaware, a domestic situation resulted in the arrest of brothers Steven and Marzette Dollard.

    WDEL.com reports that officers responded to the Wilmington residence because Marzette’s girlfriend reported that he had strangled her.

    Once they arrived they found and seized over 400 bags of heroin marked with street names like ‘Mike Vick,’ ‘Polo’ and ‘Black Label.’ There was also a “40 caliber Glock” handgun and nearly $2,000 in cash. The brothers were arrested for possession of a deadly weapon and drugs.
