LINCOLN, Del. – Delaware State Police arrested two people for heroin possession after troopers spotted them parked in the driveway of an abandoned house.
 
It all began around 8:30 p.m. as a trooper on patrol in the area of Neal Road just west of Crooked Road saw a suspicious red Buick Le Sabre backed into a driveway of a known abandoned residence.  Upon approaching the Buick, police say one person sitting outside the car in a chair, while another was seated inside the car.  

The trooper made contact with the two, who were later identified as Christopher H. Thomas, 21 of Lincoln, and Leon T. Davis, 22 of Greenwood, and a strong odor of marijuana was detected.  

Upon conducting a pat-down search of Thomas, police say they found 6 bags of heroin in his pocket along with 4.7 grams of marijuana and over $280 in suspected drug proceeds.  As the trooper continued to search Thomas, an additional 35 bags of heroin were found in his shoe.  

Police then searched Davis, who was found to be in possession of 1.2 grams of marijuana as well as over $1,400 in suspected drug money.

Both subjects were then placed in custody without incident and a search of the Le Sabre uncovered a Crown Royal bag containing 585 bags of heroin under the driver's side seat where Thomas was sitting.
 
Christopher Thomas and Leon Davis were transported back to Troop 7 in Lewes where they were both charged with Possession with Intent to Deliver Heroin, Possession of Heroin, Conspiracy 2nd, Conspiracy 3rd, two counts of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Possession of Marijuana.  They were arraigned at JP3 and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $4,600 secured bond.
