Delaware State troopers say they found the suspects at a room at the Days Inn in Newark early Wednesday morning.
After obtaining a search warrant, investigators seized 1,118 bags of heroin totaling 27.95 grams (total street value approximately $11,000.00) and a .40 caliber semiautomatic handgun along with a magazine containing 2 rounds of .40 caliber ammunition.
Police say the handgun was reported stolen in Elsmere, Delaware in January 2013.
They say Scott was in possession of $623 cash proceeds indicative of being obtained through street-level drug transactions.
Scott and Hoopes were charged with drug and weapons offenses. They are being held on $65,000 bail each.
