DOVER, Del.- A Dover woman is behind bars after police say she hid a bag of drugs and needles under her neighbor's home.

Troopers arrested 24-year-old Emily Romero Saturday night, after neighbors called saying she put a bag behind the weather skirting of their home on Fairlane Drive.

When police arrived, troopers say they found a plastic bag with 21 hypodermic needles and 1,311 bags of heroin weighing 19.665 grams.

Through further investigation, Police learned Romero tried to hide the items from her parole officers due to a previous drug dealing arrest.  

Romero is charged with Possession with Intent to Deliver Heroin, Possession of Heroin, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.  

She was arraigned at JP3 and committed to Delores J. Baylor Women's Correctional Institution on $50,250 cash bond.
