North Wilmington man arrested for heroin dealing

NORTH WILMINGTON, Del. - October 26, 2013

The task force conducted a surveillance on 24-year-old Matthew R. Brown.

Troopers observed him selling heroin to a woman in a parking lot shopping center.

Once Brown made the transaction, he and the woman were taken into custody.

Officials say the seven bags of heroin he sold to the woman were recovered.

He was also in possession of over $800 and twenty-two bags of heroin, troopers say.

A search warrant of Brown's residence in the 2400 block of Silverside Road resulted in the discovery of eight more heroin bags.

He was charged with one count of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, and released on $5,000 unsecured bail.

Additionally, as a condition of the bail, he was ordered to have no contact with the residence on Silverside Road.
