Lewes– The Delaware State Police concluded a month long drug investigation that led to the arrest of multiple suspects on several drug and other related charges.
During the month of June 2018, Troop 7 patrol units and detectives from the Rehoboth Beach Police Department developed information regarding the sale of drugs occurring in the 17000 block of Callaway Drive, Fairway Village.
