HARRINGTON, Del. - Four people were arrested during a drug investigation, in Harrington.

Delaware State Police say on Tuesday, around 7:20 PM the Kent County Drug Unit with assistance from the Kent County Governor's Task Force and State Police Special Operations Response Team, searched a home on Rachel Drive, and reportedly recovered 977 grams of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and more than $2,900 in suspected drug proceeds. Police say there was a 14-year-old male at the home at the time of the search, who was turned over to a relative.

Before the search, Police say they saw 33-year-old Luis Andino, of Frederica, leaving the home, with his 12-year-old and one-year-old children in the vehicle with him. He was apparently stopped by Troopers for speeding, and a search of his vehicle revealed 8 grams of marijuana.

Police say in a separate incident at the home that same day, 20-year-old Katelynn Focht, of Camden-Wyoming, was charged, after she apparently purchased approximately 458 grams of marijuana from her uncle, 40-year-old Eric Cole, and then distributed it to an undercover Trooper.

In all, Detectives say they recovered more than 1,430 grams of marijuana from the home.

Andino was charged with 2 counts of endangering the welfare of a child, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and failure to drive at speed appropriate conditions.

Focht was charged with 2 counts of possession with intent to deliver marijuana, possession of a tier 1 controlled substance, 2nd degree conspiracy, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Eric Cole was charged with 3 counts of possession with intent to deliver marijuana, 2 counts of possession of a tier 1 controlled substance, 2 counts of 2nd degree conspiracy, endangering the welfare of a child, and 2 counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Tammy Cole was charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana, possession of a tier 1 controlled substance, 2nd degree conspiracy, endangering the welfare of a child, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

All four people were later released on bond.
