Two men and two women were arrested Wednesday on numerous drug and gun charges following a police raid at a Milford-area hotel.
State police say they found the foursome and a 3-year-old child with 422 bundles of heroin – collectively weighing more than 137 grams – 153 oxycodone pills, 32 Suboxone strips, an unidentified amount of marijuana, $1,100 in suspected drug proceeds, a 9mm handgun and a .40 caliber handgun that had been reported as stolen in 2011.
Officers with the Kent County Drug Unit responded to the Super 8 Hotel at 729 Bay Road, north of Milford, about 11:25 p.m. after receiving a report of illegal drug sales in the area, Delaware State Police spokesman Master Cpl. Gary Fournier said.
Detectives and probation officers determined Melissa A. Summers, a 27-year-old Houston resident who was wanted on a warrant issued by the Kent County Court of Common Pleas, was renting Room 210 at the hotel, he said.
Officers made contact with Summers in the room, where they also reportedly found two men, a woman and the toddler, along with the loaded 9mm handgun hidden under a pillow.
All four adults were then taken into custody. They include Summers, 39-year-old Dover resident Jemal A. Greene, 19-year-old Harrington resident Megan G. Maloney and 24-year-old Harrington resident Robin J. Walls.
A search of the room then turned up the large drug cache and the stolen firearm, he said.
The toddler was later turned over to relatives at the scene.
Summers, Greene, Maloney and Walls each are charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession with intent to deliver heroin, possession of a controlled substance, possession of a firearm by a person prohibited possession of a stolen firearm, possession of marijuana, conspiracy and endangering the welfare of a child.
Greene is being held at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in Smyrna on a $61,500 cash bail.
Maloney is being held at the Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution in New Castle on a $42,500 cash bail.
Summers is being held at the Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution in New Castle on a $41,000 cash bail.
Walls is being held at the Vaughn Correctional Center in Smyrna on a $61,000 cash bail.
