Disturbance Call at Local Motel Leads to Drug Trafficking and Weapon Charge
Morganton Public Safety Officers responded to a disturbance call at The Comfort Inn located at 1273 Burkemont Ave at approximately 10:40 pm Monday Jan. 12, 2015.  Once on scene, officers spoke with the caller/complainant, who pointed out to officers a white male and two white females in the lobby of Comfort Inn.  According to the caller, a male suspect had threatened use of and displayed a firearm.  A voluntary/consent patdown for weapons revealed highly suspicious behavior from all three individuals.  Further investigation discovered the fictitious use of names from all three persons.  Several glass pipes (used for smoking meth or crack cocaine), a bag of hypodermic needles, multiple cell phones and a large amount of cash led officers to suspect that drug trafficking was about to take place at the hotel.
