Middletown Police were called to assist EMS personnel with an unresponsive woman. When they arrived, they found Delbert Unruh trying to remove and conceal numerous bags of heroin from the woman.
More than 100 bags of heroin were found at a Fairfield Court residence Oct. 15 after police and EMS were called to the home for an unresponsive female.
At around 7:15 p.m., police said that they arrived to the home in the 200 block of Fairfield Court where they found a 31-year-old Wilmington woman unresponsive and Delbert Unruh, 33, of Elkton, Md., attempting to conceal several bags of the drug.
Unruh was attempting to remove and conceal several small blue wax baggies from the unresponsive woman, police said.
The Elkton man refused police officers' commands to stop and was taken into custody after a brief struggle, Middletown police said.
A search of Unruh turned up nine bundles (107 baggies) of heroin, weighing about 2.6 grams.
Unruh was charged with resisting arrest, dealing heroin, possession of heroin and possession of drug paraphernalia and committed to the Howard Young Correctional Institute on lack of $1,600 secured bond.
The woman was treated at the scene and later refused medical treatment, police said. She was medically cleared and charges against her are still pending.
