Two Wilmington residents were arrested early Monday morning at the Homewood Suites Hotel on drug and weapons charges.

The Delaware State Police went to the hotel on Rocky Run Parkway just before 3 a.m. to investigate a reported disturbance in one of the rooms.

Officers say they encountered Nino Sciglitano, 30, and during a pat down they found a 9 millimeter handgun in the pocket of his jacket. They also recovered approximately 1.5 grams of suspected crack cocaine in his pants pocket, according to investigators.

The troopers then spotted Suzette Tabor, 49, seated on a sofa in the room. They observed what appeared to be crack cocaine and a pipe used to smoke crack cocaine in a cigarette pack, as well as drug paraphernalia and 63 amphetamine salt tablets, said investigators.

Sciglitano and Tabor were taken into custody.
