DELMAR, Md.- Seven people are facing drug charges after a police raid uncovered the sale of cocaine from a home in Delmar, Md., according to the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office.

The Sheriff's Office said Tuesday said an investigation revealed illegal narcotics were being sold from a home located in the 26000 block of Norfolk Drive in Delmar. 

The Sheriff's Office said the investigation  determined that the homeowner, Robert Douglas Jones, 50, had been operating the home as a drug house for an extended period of time.

indicative of distribution. Scales, packaging material, cellphones and other items indicative of CDS distribution were also located inside the home, according to investigators.
