    Delaware State Police said they confiscated these 13,000 bags of heroin during a probation violation arrest in Dover.

    Thousands of doses of heroin have been diverted from the streets after Delaware authorities confiscated the illicit opioids during a search of a Dover hotel.

    The drugs were discovered as U.S. Marshals, Dover Police and Delaware State Police took 27-year-old Cameron Norwood and 25-year-old Natasha Morris into custody at the Best Western Galaxy Inn at 1700 E. Lebanon Road in Dover Thursday, officials said.

    Norwood was wanted on a probation violation, state police said.

    During a search of the hotel room and a 2000 Saturn Aura sedan, officials found 13,000 bags of heroin — 96 grams — and a loaded 9mm handgun, state police said.

    Cameron Norwood, 27, and Natasha Morris, 25, have been charged with drug possession after 13,000 bags of heroin were discovered in their hotel room, police said.
