DOVER, Del. (AP) - State police have arrested two employees of the Delaware medical examiner's office in an investigation of evidence tampering at the state drug testing lab.

Thirty-eight-year-old James Woodson and 54-year-old Farnam Daneshgar were arrested Wednesday after being indicted by a New Castle County grand jury on Tuesday.

Woodson, who worked as a lab courier, is charged with cocaine trafficking, theft of a controlled substance, tampering with evidence and official misconduct. He also is charged with improperly accessing the state's criminal justice database.
