MILFORD, Del.- Three people from Milford were arrested during an investigation into the sale of heroin and prostitution at a motel.

The primary suspect, 66-year-old Dwight Donaldson, was taken into custody in the office of the Traveler's Inn Motel on North Walnut Street without incident, police said.

Police searched a room there and found Melinda Reed, 29, and 23-year-old Sarah Reed, who were also taken into custody.

During the search of the room, suspected heroin and related drug paraphernalia were found. Items related to prostitution were discovered, as well, police said.

According to police, when police searched Donaldson, they found an undisclosed amount of cash, which was alleged to be from the sale of illicit drugs and prostitution. Further investigation confirmed that Melinda Reed had been involved in prostitution in that room.
