New Castle County Police reported today that they have arrested two brothers after guns and drugs were found in their Hunters Crossing apartment on Fairway Road northeast of Newark earlier this week.
On Tuesday at 1:03 a.m., County Police responded to the unit block of Fairway Road in the Hunters Crossing Apartment complex for a report of a possible domestic dispute. The report said that two males were heard screaming within the apartment building. When officers arrived, they heard yelling coming from one of the apartments.
Police began knocking repeatedly on the apartment door, but received no answer. At that time, the noise had subsided. Police eventually were able to gain access to the apartment in an attempt to check on the welfare of those inside. They saw two men, later identified as brothers Trevor Adkins, 19, and Travis Adkins, 22, exit the bathroom.
Police learned both lived in the apartment and they were allegedly the sole occupants. As the officers were checking the home for any other occupants, they saw drug paraphernalia and prescription pills on the floor and on the dining room table. They also saw several weapons in plain view, along with suspected drugs.
A short time later, police obtained a search warrant for the residence. During the search they found a handgun, a loaded 12-gauge shotgun, ammunition, several marijuana grinders, water pipes, glass smoking pipes, clear glassine plastic bags, a digital scale, and two knives.
Then police found a safe that contained 140 Adderall pills, 1,055.94 grams of marijuana, three vials of Nalozone, two bags containing a small amount of methamphetamines, a plastic bag containing a small amount of lysergic acid (LSD), small clear plastic bag containing psilocybin mushrooms (2.9 grams), a medicine bottle filled with Xyrem, a pill bottle containing three Opana ER, and another that containing four Alprazolam pills.
The items were seized and both men were arrested without incident.
Police said Trevor Adkins and Travis Adkins were each charged with:
two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony,
two counts of possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony,
possession of amphetamine and Adderall,
possession with intent to deliver marijuana,
possession of a prescription drug not a controlled substance without a prescription (Narcan),
six counts of possession of a controlled or counterfeit substance except human growth hormone without a prescription (LSD, Psilocybin Mushrooms, Opana ER, Alprazolam, Xyrem, methamphetamines),
conspiracy in the second degree,
and a disorderly premise.
They were arraigned and committed to the Howard R. Young Correctional Institute after each failed to post $144, 500 cash bail.
