Suspected drugs discovered at Warren motel


WARREN — A patrol officer investigated a room in the Downtown Motor Inn, 777 Mahoning Ave., on Sunday after a known prostitute and drug addict leaving the room told the officer she had just smoked crack cocaine there.

A motel clerk also told police there had been a large amount of vehicle and foot traffic to the room since the previous night.

Several officers knocked on the door to the room at 6:09 p.m. They were allowed inside and found a crack pipe on the bathroom sink and seven people in the room, including the man who rented the room.

Police also found two small bags of suspected crack cocaine in the drawers of a night stand. No one will be charged with the drugs until a laboratory confirms what the substance is, the report said.
