SEAFORD, Del.- A Seaford man has been arrested on drug and firearm charges after police say they found more than 2,700 bags of heroin at his home.

According to Delaware State Police, at around 5 p.m. Thursday troopers conducted a search warrant at 38-year-old Leondre Williams' home on the 600 block of North Porter Street. Police said Williams was sitting in his pickup truck outside and was taken into custody immediately, due to a month-long investigation into illegal drug sales from his home.

A search of the home turned up 2,765 bags of heroin weighing 41.475 grams, 3.82 grams of marijuana, more than $8,830 in suspected drug proceeds and a loaded .357-caliber revolver reported stolen out of the Wicomico Sheriff's Office in January 2015, according to state police.

Police said Williams was charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin, possession of a controlled substance, two counts of possession of a deadly weapon by a person prohibited, receiving a stolen firearm, breech of release and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Williams was also found to be wanted out of the Seaford Police Department for reckless endangering and offensive touching, police said, as well as six capiases out of the Sussex County Court of Common Pleas. He was arraigned on all those charges, as well, and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $247,101 cash bond.
