Delaware State Police have arrested two people after drugs were located in a Millsboro-area home.
The incident occurred around 5:10 p.m. on Monday, July 17, when troopers were called to assist the Delaware Division of Family Services with an emergency custody issue at a residence located in the 27000 block of Sandy Drive, in the Riverwinds Community off Oak Orchard Road.
Upon arrival, a young child was removed from the home and placed in the care of DFS. An investigation determined that drugs were being kept in the house and a consent to search was approved by the homeowner. Troopers located 24-year-old Deshawn D. Handy, of Seaford, and 21-year-old Kayla M. Larosa, of Georgetown, in a bedroom and placed them in custody.
Located between the mattress and box spring of a bed the two were sitting on was a black cloth bag containing 13.96 grams of cocaine, 3.52 grams of crack cocaine and 271 bags (1.897 grams) of heroin. A search of Handy found over $1,600 in suspected drug proceeds.
Handy and Larosa were transported back to Troop 4 in Georgetown, where Handy was charged with three counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $72,750 secured bond.
Larosa was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was released on $5,000 unsecured bond.
The child removed from the home by DFS has no relationship to the two arrested.
