NEWARK, Delaware — Delaware law enforcement officials say a multi-agency investigation in New Castle County has resulted in the arrests or indictments of 44 people on drugs and weapons charges.
Authorities said Wednesday the investigation began in December 2013 and involved a drug-trafficking network led by 31-year-old Andrew Lloyd and 29-year-old Jarrell Brown, both of Newark.
The investigation included the execution of 17 search warrants on Oct. 30 and Nov. 25 that netted about a pound of heroin and more than five pounds of marijuana.
Lloyd was indicted on 36 felonies, including racketeering, and is being held in lieu of $1.1 million cash bail. Brown is charged with 64 felonies, including racketeering, and is being held on $1.9 million cash bail.
It was not immediately known whether the two men have lawyers.
