(Cushing) – Two Drumright residents were arrested by Cushing Police after a suspicious odor was reported at a Cushing Motel. Police responded to the Lazy-L Motel, 1027 E. Main Street, Thursday morning, where the owner told officers that the arrestees were not supposed to be in the room.

Police made contact with the couple, and obtained consent to search the room. According to a press release by the Cushing Police Department, Officers found a digital scale, glass smoking pipe, syringes, plastic baggies containing a green leafy substance, which tested presumptive positive for marijuana, plastic baggies that contained a white powdery substance, which tested presumptive positive for methamphetamine, and other drug paraphernalia.

Officers arrested Michael S. Halas, 35, and Vanessa R. Halas, 35 on complaints of Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Controlled Dangerous Substance with Intent to Distribute, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

After the arrests, Drumright Police began an investigation that led to a search of a residence in Drumright.

According to the press release, it has yet to be determined if any additional charges will be filed against the Halas’ because of the Drumright investigation.

Cushing Police Chief Terry Brannon said “This was an excellent investigative team effort on the part of MPO Harp and Officer Hise. MPO Harp recognized certain investigative clues during his initial contact with the arrestees that lead to his seeking permission to search the motel room.”

Drumright Chief Rocky Pinson said, “I am appreciative of the cooperation between my agency and the Cushing Police Department. Anytime you have two agencies that work together, regardless of size, both communities benefit because you pool your resources. As in this case, good law enforcement has no boundaries.”
