Drug arrests in motel parking lot

Deputies made two drug-related arrests in the parking lot of the Travelodge on South 6th near Interstate 10 on successive days during the past week. Both involved persons seated in suspicious vehicles.

In the first incident, Deputy Jeremiah Combs said he arrested Toni Rainey, 33, of Macclenny early on July 4 for possessing a small amount of marijuana. She was a passenger in a van that police said had been altered because Ms. Rainey apparently left her belongings in a bar earlier and there was concern for her well-being.

That arrest took place at 1:35 am after the deputy noted a baggie lying on the ground near the passenger side door.

• The second arrest involved David Crews, 25, of Hilliard, who was seated in a 2005 Kia reported as a suspicious vehicle the evening of July 5.

Deputy Marc Heath said Mr. Crews was unsteady on his feet and had slurred speech when questioned, and had a baggie of synthetic marijuana on the passenger seat. He was also found to have a glass smoking pipe in a pocket.
