Smyrna Police arrest drug dealer for drug and firearms charges



Jayaire Brittingham, 22 Recovered Evidence



Smyrna Police Department detectives recently culminated a months long drug investigation with a search and seizure warrant, resulting in the arrest of a local man. SPD detectives had identified Jayaire Brittingham, 22 of Smyrna as a drug dealer distributing heroin throughout the Smyrna area. On 9/12/22, officers with Delaware Probation and Parole took Mr. Brittingham into custody in Dover during a probation visit. SPD detectives then executed a search warrant at Mr. Brittingham’s residence located in the 100 block of N Fairfield Dr, Smyrna. Recovered during the search warrant was approximately 125 bags of heroin, 3 firearms which he is prohibited from possessing and numerous rounds of ammunition he is prohibited from possessing. One of the firearms was an unfinished “ghost gun” that has no serial number and is untraceable. Mr. Brittingham was transferred into the custody of SPD detectives where he was formally charged with the following:

Possession of an unfinished firearm with no serial number, 2 counts possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, 3 counts possession of a deadly weapon by a person prohibited, Possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, 3 counts of Endangering the welfare of a child and one misdemeanor count of possession of a controlled substance.

Mr. Brittingham was presented via video court in JP#2 where he was remanded to the Sussex Correctional Institute in lieu of $142,000 cash only bond pending a future court hearing. Smyrna PD would like to thank DEA-Dover Task Force, the Dover Police Department and Delaware Probation and Parole for their assistance in this investigation.

All that "investigating" for that tiny bit of heroin, what's that, less than 8 bundles haha . A gun that can't shoot and another gun which probably has never been fired or used in a serious crime. Real good job lol tax money hard at work. Arresting the lowest of the petty drug dealers like that will do shit another will just take his place, got to get the suppliers. Clearly they aren't skilled enough to do so 😂
