January 10, 2020

Two people face drug charges after a search of their Harbeson home uncovered illegal drugs.

Police with the Sussex Drug Unit and Governor’s Task Force took six-months to investigate illegal drug activity at a home in the 28000 block of Woodcrest Drive, and on Jan. 9 they executed a search warrant with assistance from the Special Operations Response Team, said Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe of the Delaware State Police.

As police entered the home, a Georgetown man, 40, was observed running toward the bathroom trying to dispose of crack cocaine. A 67-year-old woman was also arrested without incident, Jaffe said.

During a search of the home, Jaffe said, police found about 14 grams of crack cocaine, about 41 grams of powder cocaine, about 6 grams of marijuana, ammunition, drug paraphernalia and about $2,000 in cash.

Police charged Tomaris White of Georgetown and Gladys Sampson of Harbeson with drug charges. White was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in default of $17,250 secured bond. Sampson was released on $19,850 unsecured bond.
