MAGNOLIA, Del. - Three people in Kent County, Del. were arrested Monday in connection to selling heroin out of a Magnolia home.

The Delaware State Police Kent County Governor's Task Force made the arrests around 8:15 p.m. Tuesday as part of their investigation of the illegal sales of narcotics from a home on Walnut Street.

Police said Wednesday that officers were conducting a probation search on the home of William E. Nieberg III, 20, who was on probation stemming from a 2015 drug conviction, when they found him upstairs in a bedroom with drugs. Police said a probation officer noticed the bedroom window was open and upon looking out, saw a plastic bag that appeared to be filled with a large quantity of heroin directly below his window.  Further investigation revealed the plastic bag contained 253 bags of heroin weighing 3.795 grams, police said.  Nieberg was also found to be in possession of over $1,000 in suspected drug money.
 
As troopers and probation officers continued their search of the bedroom, a purse belonging to Haley Nickerson, 20 of Frederica was found to have three pills inside a pill bottle that were identified as Tramadol Hydrochloride, according to police.  Those pills were not prescribed to Nickerson.
 
Investigators also contacted Austin J. Balke, 29 of Magnolia who appeared to living in a shed on the property.  Upon searching him, police said he was found to be in possession of one single bag of heroin.
 
All three people were transported to Troop 3 in Camden where William Nieberg was charged with possession of a controlled substance in a tier 3 quantity (heroin), tampering with physical evidence, and possession of drug paraphernalia.  He was arraigned and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $26,100 secured bond.
