REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.- Detectives with the Sussex County Governor's Task Force says they arrested three men Monday evening after they were found to be in possession of more than 500 bags of heroin.

Detectives said they received information that 19-year-old Darin L. Copeland, of Wilmington, would have a large quantity of heroin and would be delivering it to an unspecified location in Sussex County. Troopers said that at around 8:30 p.m. Monday, they saw Copeland's BMW enter the McDonald's on Coastal Highway in Rehoboth Beach.

Police said Copeland, along with his two passengers who were later identified as 18-year-old Shaquan A. Guilford, also of Wilmington, and 40-year-old Marc J. Mackay, of Hockessin, were contacted by detectives in the parking lot and taken into custody. Troopers said they found 585 bags of heroin totaling 8.775 grams and over $450 in suspected drug money in the truck on the car.

All three suspects were taken back to Troop 4 in Georgetown where they were all charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin, possession of heroin, second-degree conspiracy, and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia. They were ordered held in the Sussex Correctional Institution in lieu of $38,000 secured bond after arraignment at JP3.
