Officers with the Sussex County Drug Unit, Sussex County Governor's Task Force, Troop 4 Patrol and the Delaware State Police Special Operations Response Team first went to a home in the 31000 block of Carey's Drive at 6 a.m. July 8, said Cpl. Gary Fournier of the Delaware State Police.

There, he said, police found a .380 semi-automatic handgun with six rounds of ammunition, 239 bags of heroin totaling 5.975 grams, eight grams of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and $4,557 in suspected drug proceeds.
