GEORGETOWN, Del.- A family from Sussex County is facing drug and weapons charges after a month-long investigation by Delaware State Police.

Police said troopers searched a home in the 17000 block of Rottie Haven Road, located west of Georgetown, where they found 32 pounds of marijuana, prescription medication, drug paraphernalia, 49 firearms, boxes of ammunition, $12,300 in cash and bath salts. Bath salts- which are hallucinogenic- were recently banned in Delaware.

Twenty-year-old Ashley Banks, 39-year-old Tabitha Banks and 41-year-old Richard Banks Jr., all of Georgetown, have been charged with several drug and weapons charges.

A fourth person, 62-year-old Richard Banks, was charged in a warrant but is not yet in custody.
