SEAFORD, Del. – Police say a months-long investigation into illegal drug sales from a home in Seaford had led to two arrests.

According to Delaware State Police, the Sussex County Drug Task Force, along with assistance from the Sussex County Governor’s Task Force, searched a residence in the 23000 block of East Middlecord Circle on Monday around 1:45 p.m. Police say the officers immediately made contact with Tyquesia M. Jackson, 22, of Seaford, and took her into custody. Officers also took Keosha F. Gibbs, 26, of Seaford, into custody after finding her in the master bathroom trying to flush a large bag of cocaine down the toilet.

Police say a search of the home revealed a total of 59.3 grams of powdered cocaine, 33.1 grams of crack cocaine, a .25 caliber handgun, drug paraphernalia, and more than $1,500 in suspected drug proceeds.

Both women were charged with possession with intent to deliver cocaine, possession of a controlled substance (cocaine), possession of a deadly weapon by a prohibited person, conspiracy and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to police. Jackson was also charged with maintaining a drug property, while Gibbs was also charged with tampering with physical evidence.

Police say they were both arraigned at JP2 and are currently being held at the Delores J. Baylor Women's Correctional Institution on $261,000 and $258,000 cash bond, respectively.
