WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A longtime employee with the Wilmington Housing Authority and his brother have been indicted on drug distribution charges.

A federal grand jury returned indictments Thursday against 46-year-old Edwin Hernandez of Wilmington and 36-year-old Hector Hernandez of New Castle. They are charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance.

Prosecutors say on Feb. 5, federal agents arrested Edwin Hernandez in a Housing Authority van in a CVS Pharmacy parking lot, and arrested his brother Hector nearby.

Authorities say Edwin Hernandez, who worked as a Housing Authority maintenance superintendent for more than 20 years, had more than 500 grams of cocaine, valued at over $50,000, on him when he was arrested.
