Police say cocaine was sold out of the Kentwood Mobile Estates by Lex D. Draper and Charles F. Kite.

Delaware State Police troopers have arrested two men following an investigation into drug sales at a local mobile home park.

Division spokeswoman Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe said Lex D. Draper, 50, and Charles F. Kite, 54, both of Dover, were taken into custody Thursday, Dec. 7.

Members of the Kent County Drug Unit, acting on information about large quantities of cocaine being sold throughout the county, focused their attention on a home in the 200 block of Kentwood Drive in the Kentwood Mobile Home Park, Jaffe said.

Police conducted surveillance on Draper and confirmed he was to deliver the cocaine; Draper and Kite both were taken into custody in the area of Rose Valley School Road.

A search found they were in possession of 15.71 grams of cocaine, Jaffe said.

Both men are charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, second-degree conspiracy and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Draper and Kite have been committed to the Vaughn Correctional Center, Smyrna, on a $72,200 secured bond each.

In addition to the KDU, the investigation was conducted by members of the Kent County Governor’s Task Force and the Smyrna Police Department.
