 WILMINGTON, Del. (AP/WBOC) - Delaware State Police say six people in two rooms at a motel were arrested on drug and weapons charges after a trooper saw an unattended car left running in the parking lot.

It happened about 3 a.m. Friday at the Fairview Inn on South Marking Street. Police say a trooper on routine patrol spotted the running 2014 Dodge Charger and noticed there was loud music playing from it. While investigating, police say the trooper noticed drugs and a gun in the front seat area.

Through further investigation, troopers were able to link six individuals who were currently occupying two separate rooms at the motel, to the Dodge Charger, as well as two other vehicles that were parked in the motel lot. Police say a subsequent search of the two rooms and the three vehicles was conducted which resulted in the seizure of a Smith and Wesson 40 caliber handgun which had been reported as stolen to the Wilmington Police Department in 2013. 

Troopers also located a Glock handgun, 25 grams of heroin, .8 grams of crack cocaine, .8 grams of marijuana, 7 Endocet pills, assorted drug paraphernalia, and over $5900 in cash.

28-year-old Michael Wiggins, of New Castle, Del., 31-year-old Demetrius Mayo and 18-year-old Chardae Brown, both of Wilmington, Del., 41-year-old Diwani Knight, of Newark, Del., 25-year-old Anthony Washington, of Middletown, Del., and 21-year-old Annquasia Watson, of Salem, New Jersey, were arrested and charged with drug and weapons offenses.
