MILFORD, Del.- Delaware State Police say four people are facing a slew of charges after firearms and a large amount of heroin and other illegal drugs were found in their Milford area hotel room.
 
Police said that on Wednesday, the Kent County Drug Unit, with the assistance of the Kent County Governor's Task Force, responded to the Super 8 Hotel located on Bay Road north of Milford in response to illegal drug sales being reported in the area. 
 
Detectives said they obtained information that 27-year-old Melissa A. Summers of Houston, Del., was wanted on a capias out of the Kent County Court of Common Pleas and was renting one of the rooms at the hotel. Detectives made contact with Summers at room #210, along with 39-year-old Jemal A. Greene of Dover, 19-year-old Megan G. Maloney of Harrington, 24-year-old Robin J. Walls of Harrington, and a 3-year-old girl. When detectives entered the room, they said they observed drug paraphernalia and located a loaded 9mm handgun hidden under a pillow and immediately place all four adults in custody without incident. 
 
Detectives said the execution of a search warrant on the room led to the seizure of 422 bundles of heroin with an approximate weight of more than 137 grams, 153 Oxycodone pills, 32 Suboxone strips, drug paraphernalia and more than $1,100 in suspected drug proceeds. Detectives also recovered a .40 caliber handgun that was reported stolen back in November of 2011, according to police.
 
Summers, Greene, Maloney and Walls were transported back to Troop 3 where they were each charged with two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession with intent to deliver heroin, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance (Oxycodone), two counts of possession of a controlled substance, two counts of possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, possession of a stolen firearm, second-degree conspiracy, endangering the welfare of a child and possession of marijuana. Greene and Maloney were additionally charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
 
All four were turned over to the Department of Corrections in lieu of cash bonds. 
 
The 3-year-old was turned over to relatives at the scene.
