The Dover police released their March report which found it had seized a dramatic amount of heroin that month.

WBOC reports that the Dover PD took in 743 grams of heroin in March as well as 270 grams of cocaine and 563 grams of marijuana.

Meanwhile, the number of calls received had increased by 2-thousand over the same time last year standing at a total of 10-thousand.

The television station says the report also found that most of the burglaries have been solved this year while the number of car crashes remained steady.

DOVER, Del. (AP) - A state report shows Delaware's red-light cameras are reducing the frequency of dangerous crashes at 30 intersections, even as they bring in fewer dollars than in past years.

The News Journal reports the Delaware Department of Transportation's program generated more than 39,000 red-light tickets and about $4 million in fines last year. Fines are $112.50 each. After the program's expenses, it brought in just under $900,000.
