WOODSIDE, Del.- Two people are facing drug charges following their arrests at a convenience store near Woodside.
 
Delaware State Police say members of its Kent County Governor's Task Force were tipped off about an alleged drug transaction that was going to occur Tuesday evening at the Uncle Willie's Convenience Store at 5485 South DuPont Highway. 
 
Police said detectives established surveillance in the area and observed a black Chrysler Sebring matching the description given, enter the parking lot around 10:50 p.m. Investigators said that as the driver, who was later identified as 27-year-old Jheri J. Troise of Dover, and her passenger, 21-year-old Jermaine Scott, also of Dover, parked and exited the vehicle, troopers and probation officers assigned to GTF converged on the car and took Troise into custody without incident. 
 
Police said Scott, who entered the store and went inside the bathroom, was taken into custody after a brief struggle in which troopers deployed a Taser to subdue him.
 
Investigators said Scott was found to be in possession of more than 11 grams of cocaine, along with a digital scale.  A search of Troise's car revealed 2.3 grams of marijuana, according to police.
 
Both suspects were transported back to Troop 3 where they were charged with possession with intent to deliver cocaine, possession of a controlled substance (cocaine), second-degree conspiracy, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Scott was additionally charged with resisting arrest.
 
Troise and Scott were both ordered held in the Sussex Correctional Institution in lieu of $29,000 secured bond.
