Posted: Updated:

LEWES, Del. - Delaware State Police say an investigation into heroin dealing resulted in the arrest of two Millsboro men yesterday.

According to reports, the investigation by the Sussex County Governor's Task Force (GTF) determined that a probationer on home confinement, Eric Howell, 38, was selling large amounts of heroin. On October 4 GTF members reportedly set up surveillance of Howell while Howell was allowed to leave his home in order to work. Troopers say they observed Howell being driven in a Honda CR-V by Jason Kehler, 28. The two reportedly drove to a drug store in Lewes where they met a man who purchased heroin from Howell. After Troopers stopped the man, they say they  determined he had purchased twenty-six bags (.39 gram) of heroin, and other GFT members stopped the CR-V.

Howell was reportedly taken into custody and found to have 244 bags (3.66 grams) of heroin in his possession, as well as over $4,000. Six additional bags (.09 gram) of heroin, belonging to Kehler, were located in the vehicle. Troopers say Howell's money was seized and he was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance in a Tier 3 Quantity, three counts of Possession with Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance in a Tier 2 Quantity, Conspiracy Second Degree, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. He was reportedly committed to Sussex Correctional Institute on $38,000 cash bail. Kehler was reportedly charged with two counts of Possession with Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance, Conspiracy Second Degree, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Possession of a Controlled Substance, and was released on $34,500 unsecured bail.
