  • Two Dover residents were arrested June 19 after drugs and weapons were found at their home during a search by police.
    Augustine Butcher and Eva Bailey, both 35, of the first block of Heritage Drive, Dover, were taken into custody when the warrant-authorized search turned up 74.4 grams of cocaine, 10 Ecstasy pills and two firearms, said police spokesman Lt. David Spicer.
    Both were charged with possession with intent to deliver cocaine, possession of cocaine in Tier 5 quantity, second-degree conspiracy, possession with intent to deliver Ecstasy, and six counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
    The latter charges were leveled because there were six children in the home at the time of the search, Spicer said.
    Butcher also was charged with two counts of possession of a firearm by a person prohibited and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
    Butcher was ordered jailed in default of a $228,200 secured bond, while Bailey was freed on a $33,200 unsecured bond.
