New Castle County Police have arrested two brothers after police found drugs and firearms inside their Newark home.

It was 1:03 a.m. Tuesday when County Police responded to the unit block of Fairway Road in the Hunters Crossing Apartment complex for a report of a domestic dispute.

Arriving officers heard yelling coming from within one of the apartments. They approached the residence and knocked repeatedly, but no one answered the door.

Police say the shouting stopped, at which time they entered the apartment to check on the wellbeing of those inside.

Once inside they observed two men, identified as 19-year-old Trevor Adkins and 22-year-old Travis Adkins, exit the bathroom.

When officers then searched the apartment they found drug paraphernalia and prescription pills on the floor and on the dining room table. They also saw several weapons in plain view, along with suspected drugs.

Police then obtained a search warrant for the residence and discovered a handgun, a loaded 12 gauge shotgun, ammunition, several marijuana grinders, water pipes, glass smoking pipes, clear glassine plastic bags, a digital scale, and two knives.

According to police, they also found a safe containing 140 Adderall pills, 1,055.94 grams of marijuana, three vials of Nalozone, two bags containing a small amount of methamphetamines, a plastic bag containing a small amount of LSD, small clear plastic bag containing psilocybin mushrooms (2.9 grams), a medicine bottle filled with Xyrem, a pill bottle containing three Opana ER, and another that containing four Alprazolam pills.

The items were seized and the brothers were arrested without incident.

Trevor Adkins and Travis Adkins are charged with two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, two counts of possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, possession of amphetamine and Adderall, possession with intent to deliver marijuana, possession of a prescription drug not a controlled substance without a prescription, six counts of possession of a controlled or counterfeit substance except human growth hormone without a prescription, conspiracy in the second degree and disorderly premise.

They were arraigned and committed to the Howard R. Young Correctional Institute after each failed to post $144, 500 bail.
