DAGSBORO, Del. - Four Sussex County men have been arrested after an investigation into illegal drug sales at a Dagsboro home.

Delaware State Police say the Sussex County Drug Unit and the Governor's Task Force ended their investigation on Nov. 2 at a home in the 28000 block of East Diamond Drive in the Diamond Acres development.

According to police, there had been multiple complaints of people loitering at the home and selling narcotics in the cul-de-sac out front. Police said they set up surveillance in the area and watched multiple hand-to-hand drug transactions, one of which was conducted by 23-year-old Alfred Wescott Jr. of Frankford.
