SEAFORD, Del.- Delaware State Police say a Seaford man is facing multiple charges after a raid on his home led to the seizure of nearly 600 bags of heroin.

Police said that shortly before 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24, members of the Sussex Governor’s Task Force and the Sussex Drug Unit concluded a month-long drug investigation that led to a search warrant being served on the Concord Road home of 31-year-old Damarius T. Turnage

Troopers said Turnage is currently on probation and serving a home confinement sentence.  When they arrived at his home, detectives and probation officers encountered Turnage on his front porch. Turnage attempted to run inside the home but was taken into custody, police said.

Police said the execution of the search warrant resulted in the seizure of the following items: 

  • Approximately 585 bags of heroin
  • Approximately 45.56 grams of marijuana
  • Drug paraphernalia
  • More than $5,000 in suspected drug proceeds

Turnage was transported back to Troop 4 where he was charged with the following:

  • Possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance in a Tier 4 quantity
  • Possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance
  • Resisting arrest
  • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia

Turnage was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $216,600 cash only bond.
