MILLSBORO, Del. - Police have wrapped up a several month long investigation with two arrests.

Delaware State Police Sussex County Governor's Task Force along with the Sussex County Drug Unit, were watching a home on Karen Street in Careys Camp Mobile Home Park, where they reportedly saw 41-year-old Jermaine Leatherbury have illegal drug transactions. When troopers attempted to talk to Leatherbury, he apparently threw 21 baggies of suspected heroin into the air, and then reportedly fled on foot, but was picked up shortly there after, and taken into custody.

During a search of the home, Police say that they found another 241 baggies of heroin, which totaled more than 6.5 grams, along with nearly 5 grams of cocaine, 16 grams of marijuana, and $210 in suspected drug proceeds. According to the report, there were four children in the home, who were all turned over to a relative at the scene.

When troopers originally arrived on scene, they found Justin Holston, 23, of Georgetown, in a car in the driveway. In the car, he reportedly had one bag of heroin, and two syringes. He was arrested, charged with possession of heroin, and 2 counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, and released on bond.

Leatherbury was charged with 2 counts of possession with intent to deliver heroin, possession with intent to deliver cocaine, possession of heroin, tampering with physical evidence, possession of marijuana, resisting arrest, 3 counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, and 4 counts of endangering the welfare of a child. He is being held at Sussex Correctional Institution on $133,250 bond.
