Harrington Police along with Milford Police have concluded a two-week long drug investigation and arrested Robert L. Kopp Sr., 65, of Harrington.

According to Harrington Police spokesman Cpl. Keith B. Shyers, Kopp was arrested after he allegedly sold Oxycodone and Xanax to an undercover police officer three times on three separate occasions. The investigation ended July 19 after Kopp met with the undercover police officer and planned on selling 100 Xanax pills and 60 Oxycodone pills. Kopp was taken into custody and officers seized his pills along with his vehicle.

The Harrington Police later obtained a search warrant on Kopp’s residence and a Milford Police officer also assisted with the search. The search revealed that Kopp was in possession of 73 more Xanax pills, Shyers said.

Kopp was charged with three counts of delivery of a schedule II narcotic, one count of delivery of a schedule IV narcotic, two counts of possession with intent to deliver a schedule II narcotic, two counts of possession with intent to deliver a schedule IV narcotic, two counts of maintaining a vehicle for keeping a controlled substance, one count of possession of a narcotic schedule II narcotic, four counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, one count of possession of a narcotic schedule IV, and one count of maintaining a dwelling for keeping a controlled substance.

Kopp was arraigned at the Harrington Police Department and committed to Sussex County Correctional Institute on a $62,000 cash bond.

In April, Harrington Police arrested Kopp for delivering narcotics to an undercover police officer on two separate occasions, Shyers said. Kopp was out on bond from the last arrest.
