FELTON, Del.– Delaware State Police say a mother and son are facing drug and related charges following a month-long investigation into the illegal sale of marijuana from a Felton home.

Troopers said they took Jose Jimenez, 21, and his mother, Cynthia Jimenez, 52, into custody after a search of their home on Barratts Chapel Road Thursday turned yielded yielded more than 228 grams of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia, a 9 mm handgun with one round in the chamber, a muzzle loader rifle, and more than $590 in suspected drug proceeds.

The DSP Kent County Drug Task Force and the Kent County Governor's Task Force and Special Operations Response Team conducted the search and investigation.

Troopers responded to the same home for a report of shots fired on Aug. 31. A disabled vehicle was located approximately a half mile away from the house with four bullet holes, one of them striking the radiator, police said. The four occupants, four 18-year-olds, were not injured and were unable to give a description of the shooter. According to police, a preliminary investigation reveals there was a party at the home and when an altercation broke out, the gathering began to break up as gunshots rang out. That incident remains under investigation.

On Thursday, Jose and Cynthia Jimenez were charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance (marijuana), two counts of possession of a deadly weapon by a person prohibited and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police said Cynthia Jiminez was also charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance (marijuana) and possession of drug paraphernalia, which stemmed from an incident that occurred on July 24 when she sold approximately 7.9 grams of marijuana to an undercover trooper at the home.

Jose Jiminez was committed to James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in lieu of $162,000 secured bond, while his mother was released on $10,200 unsecured bond.
