FELTON, Del.- Delaware State Police say a raid on a Felton home led to the seizure of cocaine and the discovery of a marijuana grow operation. Troopers also have arrested the home's occupant, 31-year-old Curtis D. Jones.
 
Police said that on Wednesday, the Kent County Drug Unit executed a search warrant at a home located on the 1700 block of Irish Hill Road.

As a result of raid, troopers said they seized 41 grams of powdered cocaine and discovered a large tent inside of a bedroom of the house utilized as a marijuana "grow chamber." Police said the tent was equipped with artificial lighting, soil, fertilizers and a ventilation fan used to circulate and ventilate air within the tent. Located within the "grow chamber" were 48 marijuana plants in varying stages of growth, investigators said. Troopers said they also located two large marijuana plants growing outside in the rear of the property.
 
Police said troopers also located two boxes of "medical marijuana" seeds, a digital scale utilized to weigh drugs, several high capacity handgun ammunition magazines, and a box of .38-caliber ammunition. 
 
Troopers said the center of the investigation, identified as Jones, was not inside the home at the time of the search warrant but later turned himself into troopers at Troop 3 without incident. Jones was charged with possession with intent to deliver cocaine Tier 4 quantity, possession of cocaine in Tier 5 quantity, possession of ammunition by person prohibited prior violent crime felony, manufacturing marijuana, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Jones is being held in the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $90,000 secured bond.
