Troopers with the Delaware State Police Kent County Drug Task Force have arrested a Harrington man, identified as Coshaun S. Simmons, 21, following a month-long drug investigation near Felton.
The arrest took place at 2:30 p.m. Aug. 8, said police spokesman Master Cpl. Gary Fournier. Members of the Kent County Drug Unit contacted Simmons in the parking lot of Uncle Willie’s Shore Stop and took him into custody without incident. Simmons, who was a suspect in an ongoing investigation into illegal drug sales, was in possession of 13 grams of cocaine and 0.9 grams of marijuana, Fournier said.
With the assistance of the Kent County Governor’s Task Force, detectives executed a search warrant at Simmons’ residence in the unit block of Rose Haven Drive, Harrington.
During the execution of the search warrant, detectives located a fully loaded Tech 9 handgun, a fully loaded .22 handgun, 0.6 grams of cocaine, 3.2 grams of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia. Five Xanax pills also were discovered along with more than $1,200 in suspected drug proceeds.
Simmons was charged with possession with intent to deliver cocaine, two counts of possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, possession of ammunition by a person prohibited, two counts of possession of cocaine, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription (xanax), two counts of possession of marijuana, and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was jailed at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center after failing to pay a $32,500 secured bond.
