HARRINGTON, Del.- Four people were arrested Tuesday, in connection with illegal possession and distribution of marijuana. 

According to Delaware State Police, at approximately 7:20 p.m. Tuesday, the Kent County Drug Unit, with the assistance of the Kent County Governor's Task Force and State Police Special Operations Response Team (SORT) executed a search warrant at a residence in the 300 block of Rachel Drive.  Upon their arrival, Eric C. Cole, 40, and Tammy M. Cole, 46, were taken into custody without incident. 

Police said that during the execution of the search warrant, detectives located three large, individually packaged Ziploc bags of marijuana, totaling 977 grams, along with numerous items of drug paraphernalia and more than $2,900.00 in suspected drug proceeds.  According to police, a 14-year-old male was also in the house at the time of the search, and was turned over to a relative.

Prior to the search warrant being executed, DSP said Luis A. Andino, 33, of Frederica, was observed leaving the residence, and was stopped a short distance away by troopers for speeding.  Police told WBOC that a pat down search of Andino revealed he was in possession of approximately eight grams of marijuana, all while his two children, ages 12 and 1 ½, were traveling with him.
