A Dover woman, identified as Cassie Lynch, 30, has been arrested after she was discovered carrying 50 bags of heroin, Dover Police Department spokesman Cpl. Mark Hoffman said Wednesday.

Police made the arrest at about 4 p.m. Feb. 24, in the parking lot of the Home Depot at 801 N. Dupont Highway, Hoffman said.

Hoffman said Lynch was taken into custody as part of an active drug investigation, but did not elaborate.

Lynch is charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin and possession of drug paraphernalia.

She later was released on a $10,200 unsecured bond.

Officers from the Dover Police Department Safe Streets Unit and Drug Unit, along with the Delaware State Police Drug Unit, took part in the arrest, Hoffman said.
