A Detroit man is in custody after Pulaski police executed a search warrant at Budget Inn motel Thursday, for the second time in a week.
Pulaski Police Department Capt. Anthony Meredith said in a Friday press release that police responded to the 509 E. Main St. motel around 10:30 p.m. Thursday after receiving “a community caretaker call for service.” He explained that the call involved a “completely unrelated” well-being check on a subject staying at the motel.
Meredith said officers observed drug activity in room 107 while at the motel. The room was secured and search warrants were obtained for that room, three other rooms and a vehicle parked in the motel parking lot. Dublin Police Department’s narcotics dog also was summoned to the scene.
The search turned up an unspecified amount of narcotics, including crack cocaine, marijuana and various types of Schedule I, II, III and IV prescription medications, according to Meredith. About $2,100 in cash also was seized.
DuJuan Antonio Cannon, 31, of Detroit, was arrested on four felony charges of possession of narcotics and possession of narcotics with intent to distribute. He also is charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
Cannon is being held without bond at New River Valley Regional Jail.
Two other people were issued misdemeanor citations and released from custody at the scene. They are identified as Anthony Frank Laster, 25, of Detroit, and Terrell Marquis Love, 27, of Pulaski.
Two people were arrested in room 121 at Budget Inn Monday after police executed a search warrant on the room and allegedly found an inactive methamphetamine lab. Police were at the motel that time in order to serve an outstanding warrant on a man staying in the room, according to Meredith.
