SMYRNA, Del. - Three women involved in a drug sale in broad daylight were arrested this month in Smyrna after an off-duty police officer spotted the transaction, authorities said.

The alleged drug sale happened about 2:45 p.m. on Sept. 10 in the Glenwood Plaza Shopping Center, according to Smyrna police.

Police said that after the off-duty officer alerted authorities, a patrolman pulled over Jennifer Bell, 44, of Marydel, Del., near Wheatley’s Pond Road and North Carter Road, where she admitted to buying 10 bags of heroin.

Police said the vehicle with the other suspects, later identified as Kyah Hall, 21, of Philadelphia, and her passenger, Jayme Turner, 22, of Smyrna, passed by the traffic stop and was pulled over by officers in the area of Wheatley’s Pond Road and Coldwater Drive. 

A search of the vehicle turned up 390 bags of heroin, 0.4 grams of MDMA, and suspected drug proceeds, according to investigators. All three women were taken into custody by Smyrna police.

Police said Turner was later found to have hidden an additional 13 bags of heroin on her person.

Bell was charged with possession of a controlled substance, and driving while suspended and issued a $650.00 unsecured bond, police said.

Hall and Turner face charges of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance in a Tier 4 quantity, second-degree conspiracy, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said. 

Hall was arraigned and committed into custody of the state Department of Corrections in lieu of $20,850 secured bond, police said.

Turner, who police said was also charged with an additional count of possession of a controlled substance, was committed in lieu of $21,100 secured bond.
