A man and a woman from Middletown are facing drug charges following a police raid at an Odessa-area motel on Friday.
Stanford M. Denby III, 23, and Brooke Y. Ganderton, 22, were taken into custody in a room at the Pleasant Hill Motel at 3155 Dupont Parkway, just south of Odessa, about 1 p.m., according to Delaware State Police spokesman Cpl. Gary Fournier.
Police also seized 341 bags of heroin, totaling more than 8.5 grams, 2.4 grams of cocaine, less than a gram of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and more than $1,800 in suspected drug proceeds, Fournier said.
Denby and Ganderton each are charged with possession of heroin, possession with intent to deliver cocaine, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and conspiracy.
Both were later released after posting their respective $72,300 secured bonds, Fournier said.
The arrests were the result of a month-long investigation into illegal drug sales at the motel, he said.
