FELTON, Del.- Delaware State say a month-long investigation has led to the arrest of a Harrington man on numerous drug and weapon charges.

Simmons was transported back to Troop 3 where he was charged with possession with intent to deliver cocaine, two counts of possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, possession of ammunition by a person prohibited, two counts of possession of cocaine, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription (Xanax), two counts of possession of marijuana and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held on $32,500 secured bond.
