Volusia County sheriff’s detectives arrested three Deltona residents Tuesday on narcotics charges, just hours after two of them said they redeemed a winning Florida lottery scratch-off ticket for $20,000.

The arrests were the culmination of a criminal investigation into activities at 2675 Howland Blvd. in Deltona. Those arrested are:

•        Luis Correa, 39, (DOB: 7-20-1980); charged with possession of heroin, two counts of possession of schedule 4 substance, possession of schedule 2 and 1 substances, possession of new legend drug without prescription, and two counts of sale and delivery of heroin within 1,000 feet of a school;

•        Migdalia Cruz, 59, (DOB: 2-9-1960), mother of Correa; charged with sale of heroin within 1,000 feet of a school;

•        Dana LaFlamme, 34, (DOB: 12-27-1984); charged with habitual driving while license suspended and violation of probation for possessing ammunition by a convicted felon.

On Tuesday around 4:30 p.m., detectives from the Deltona Narcotics Enforcement Team executed a search warrant at the home where the three defendants were located and arrested. Cruz and Correa were standing outside the home, while LaFlamme was inside. Correa was found holding three bags of narcotics which tested positive for both heroin and fentanyl.

During the search warrant investigation at the home, detectives found additional suspected heroin as well as pills identified as a new legend drug, Hydromorphone, ecstasy/MDMA, suspected Xanax, cocaine residue, Clonazepam (schedule 4 substance), and miscellaneous drug paraphernalia.

Cruz told detectives she had just returned from Orlando where she and her son claimed their $20,000 prize for a winning scratch-off ticket.

The trio was transported to the Volusia County Branch Jail without incident. Correa remains held on $36,000 bail; Cruz was released on $5,000 bail; LaFlamme remains held with no bail allowed.
