New Castle woman sentenced for storing guns, drugs in her home
A New Castle woman was sentenced Tuesday for violating federal narcotics laws.
Deia Eggleston, 46, pleaded guilty to the count back in February.
According to the release, Eggleston was connected to a cocaine distribution drug trafficking organization in New Castle that also included Dondi Searcy, Jr., also of New Castle.
Eggleston was part of the conspiracy by allowing Searcy and others to use her home to make and store illegal narcotics and guns.
The release says she also helped Searcy in connection with a kilogram of cocaine he had arranged to have mailed to the home next door to Eggleston but the package was intercepted by law enforcement.
During a search of Eggleston's home, officers found numerous drugs and guns.
She was sentenced to 46 months in prison with a three-year term of supervised release.
