Officers arrested a 55-year-old man at a Pomona motel today who was carrying about two ounces of methamphetamine that had a street value of approximately $5,000, police said.
Officers who arrived at about at 7:17 a.m. to the Lemon Tree Motel on 1700 Gillette Road, also found a digital scale and “packaging material consistent with sales of methamphetamine,” according to a department statement.
Police were sent to the motel after receiving several complaints about narcotics and prostitution at the motel, according to the statement.
“Officers learned of a subject staying in one of the rooms (who) had outstanding warrants,” according to the statement.
Jay Charter, a resident of Rialto, was later arrested with the drugs inside his motel room.
