SEAFORD, Del.– The Delaware State Police Sussex County Drug Unit has arrested two men in connection with an illegal drug distribution takedown.

Police said that at around 6:45 p.m. Monday, Aug. 14, the Sussex County Drug Unit, with the assistance of the Sussex County Governor’s Task Force and Special Operations Response Team, executed a search warrant in the 24000 block of Concord Pond Road. 

Upon arrival, police arrested Fred Clanton Jr., 58, of Bridgeville, and Willie J. Adamson, 53, of Seaford. Police said they found Clanton in possession of 17.73 grams of crack cocaine and 113 bags (0.791 grams) of heroin.  Information was received that Clanton was storing a large amount of illegal narcotics in the trunk of a white Acura that was parked at a home located in the 21000 block of Mill Park Drive in Bridgeville.  Detectives went to the location of the tip and carried out a consent search on the vehicle, and confiscated 2,440 bags (17.08 grams) of heroin, according to police. 

Clanton and Adamson were both transported back to Troop 4 in Georgetown.
