Delaware State Police say they've charged a Millsboro ice cream truck driver with selling drugs from his truck and his home.

After receiving a tip that 47-year-old Merrill Weatherly was selling drugs, police say a two-week investigation showed that he was selling drugs from his personal ice cream truck.

Officers stopped the truck as he left his home on Friday and police say they found 17 Oxycodone tablets and more than $970 in the truck and six Suboxone strips in Weatherly's home.

Weatherly is charged with dealing a controlled substance and several related drug charges.
