  • A three-month-long investigation into illegal drug sales led to the arrest of three Dover residents on March 27.
    The Kent County Drug Task Force, with the assistance of the Kent County Governor’s Task Force and the Delaware State Police Special Operations Response Team conducted a search warrant in the unit block of Wayne Drive in Dover on Thursday afternoon, said Master Cpl. Gary Fournier of the Delaware State Police.
    Upon executing the search warrant, 25-year-old Zashonna L. Wayman and 52-year-old Kenneth E. Randolph were taken into custody without incident, Fournier said.  Two juvenile children were also in the house and were turned over to relatives at the scene. 
    The search revealed a total of 546 bags of heroin weighing approximately 10.92 grams, two fully loaded 9mm handguns and ammunition, drug paraphernalia, and more than $2,800 in suspected drug proceeds, Fournier said.
     Prior to the search warrant, a Mitsubishi Montero was seen leaving the residence, Fournier said.  A traffic stop was initiated due to an equipment violation and contact was made with Jermaine D. Brinkley, 28, who is known to live at the targeted address.  He was taken into custody without incident and transported back to Troop 3 along with Wayman and Randolph, Fournier said.
    All three were charged with two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession with the intent to deliver heroin, possession of heroin, possession of a deadly weapon by a person prohibited, receiving a stolen firearm, second-degree conspiracy, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.
    Randolph, who is a Tier-2 medium risk sex offender, was additionally charged with failure to re-register his address and was committed to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on a $56,200 cash bond. Brinkley was committed to JTVCC on a $55,200 cash bond and Wayman was released after posting a $45,700 secured bond.
