SMYRNA, Del. – A Smyrna man has been committed to the James. T. Vaughn Correctional Center following his arrest Tuesday on burglary and drug charges. 

Officers from the Smyrna Police Department said that shortly before 2 p.m. Nov. 30, they responded to a home on North Delaware Street for a reported burglary. They learned an unknown suspect had entered the home through an unsecured door and taken a milk crate filled with DVDs and CDs. Police say the suspect broke and damaged the victim's wooden fence during the burglary.

Detectives said they later determined the suspect was 27-year-old Christopher S. Evans and obtained a warrant for his arrest on charges of burglary, theft and criminal mischief.

On Tuesday, officers arrested Evans while he was entering his place of employment on Glenwood Avenue. Police said they found him in possession of heroin, marijuana, and 64.5 prescription pills of eight different varieties. Officers arrested Evans for two counts of possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Evans was processed and arraigned in the Justice of the Peace Court 2 via video phone and committed to the correctional center in default of $8,500 secured bond.

According to police, at the time of his arrest Evans also had warrants out of the Dover Police Department for a pair of residential burglaries there. Dover police have charged him with two counts of second-degree burlary, possession of burglary tools, theft under $1,500 and two counts of criminal mischief under $1,000.

    Nearly Half of July's Overdoses Were in Sussex County

    The opioid epidemic continues to ravage the nation, including here in Sussex County where nearly half of the deaths from drug overdoses this month are from Delaware's southern-most county. 

    The recent spike has prompted a state warning specifically targeted at heroin users. According to the release, the uptick may be the result of heroin being laced with fentanyl, a synthetic opioid much more powerful than most drugs.
