Police in Wilmington say a tip from a concerned citizen helped lead to the arrest of an armed drug dealer Saturday.
Police say the concerned citizen called police after spotting an alleged drug transaction near an alley on the 800 block of W. 6th Street in the afternoon.
An officer of the Wilmington Police Department responded to the area and saw the suspect who was described by the citizen.
Police say the suspect, Dashawn Broomer, was taken into custody.
Police say a search of the area turned up a handgun, a box of ammunition and a bag of more than 100 grams of marijuana.
Rain at times expected tonight, Friday, and early Saturday. Another fall-like blast of cool weather to follow for the weekend.
Expect unsettled weather through Saturday morning as waves of showers and thunderstorms move through the area. Some of the storms may bring heavy downpours late tonight and again Friday afternoon.
Friday is still humid but by Saturday much cooler air moves in making it feel more like fall. Sunday is nice with a cool breeze and unseasonably low temperatures which last though early next week.
