The Delaware State Police have arrested four people after guns and drugs were found in their Milford hotel room.

On Wednesday February 20th, the Kent County Drug Unit, with the assistance of the Kent County Governor’s Task Force (GTF), responded to the Super 8 Hotel located on Bay Road north of Milford in response to illegal drug sales being reported in the area. Detectives and Probation Officers were able to obtain information that Melissa A. Summers was wanted on a capias out of Kent County Court of Common Pleas and was renting one of the rooms at the hotel. Contact was made with Melissa Summers at room #210 along with Jemal A. Greene, Megan G. Maloney, Robin J. Walls, and a three year old female. Upon entering the room, detectives report observing drug paraphernalia and located a loaded 9mm handgun hidden under a pillow and immediately placing all subjects in custody without incident.

Detectives then obtained a search warrant for the room and upon executing it, report observing 422 bundles of heroin with an approximate weight of more than 137 grams, 153 Oxycodone pills, 32 Suboxone strips, drug paraphernalia, and over $1,100.00 in suspected drug proceeds. Detectives also report recovering a .40 caliber handgun that was reported stolen back in November of 2011.

All four subjects were transported back to Troop 3 where they were processed and arraigned on the above listed charges before being turned over to the Department of Corrections in lieu of cash bonds. The three year old was turned over to relatives at the scene.
