On May 8, 2021, at approximately 11:39 a.m., Sussex County Governor’s Task Force members were on proactive patrol in the area of DuPont Blvd. and South Bedford St., Georgetown, when they observed a green Acura MDX traveling northbound DuPont Blvd. with illegal tinting on all of the windows including the windshield. Unit members initiated a traffic stop and made contact with the operator, later identified as Shantai Lancaster, and the front seat passenger, later identified as Kyanna Stevens. Upon contact, Lancaster did not have a valid driver’s license and the trooper detected an odor of marijuana emitting from inside of the vehicle. A criminal investigation ensued and subsequently a probable cause search was conducted.
