GEORGETOWN, Del.- Police on Friday announced that a three-month investigation into illegal drug sales from a Georgetown home has led to the arrests of three suspects on a slew of charges.

Georgetown police said that in late September officers conducted a drug raid at a home on Conaway Street. According to investigators, during their search of the home officers located crack cocaine and money.

Police arrested 51-year-old James May, also known a "Kool-Aid," of Georgetown, for possession with the intent to deliver cocaine and other drug-related charges. Police also arrested 54-year-old Sherman Jackson Jr. of Lewes, for possession of crack cocaine. Both men were ordered held in the Sussex Correctional Institute in lieu of bond.

On Dec. 21, police said they executed another search and seizure warrant at the same home on Conaway Street. Police again arrested James May and another suspect, identified as 26-year-old Megan Couchman of Lewes. Both were charged with possession with the intent to deliver crack cocaine, possession with intent to deliver heroin, conspiracy, and other drug-related offensives. May was ordered held on $24,000 cash bond while Couchman was jailed on $8,400 secured bond.

During the investigation, police said they seized more than 12 grams of crack cocaine, 34 bags of heroin, $3,500 in cash, a 2002 Cadillac Deville and a 2008 Dodge Caliber.
