DOVER, Del. (AP) - Dover police say a Smyrna man is facing drug charges after the seizure of a large amount of heroin at a motel.

Police announced that officers executed a search warrant at the First State Inn on DuPont Highway on Tuesday and found nearly 96 grams of heroin in 6,396 bags and $13,075 in cash. Police say they arrested 28-year-old Darren Swiggett and charged him with heroin possession, delivery of heroin and other drug offenses.

Police spokesman Lt. David Spicer says investigators believe Swiggett was operating alone.

Swiggett is being held at the Vaughn Correctional Center after failing to post $211,000 cash bail.
