BEEVILLE – Two men and two women were in custody at the Bee County Jail Friday morning after city and county officers raided a room at the Motel 6.

Police Chief Joe Treviño said narcotics investigators received a complaint concerning what some people at the motel believed to be illegal activity.

Investigators obtained a search warrant and hit the motel room sometime after 3 a.m.

Inside the room, officers found about $300 in cash, cocaine, synthetic marijuana and marijuana.

Those arrested were 20-year-old Jeremiah Arredondo, 30-year-old Chris Campos, 37-year-old Margaret Brown and 19-year-old Michaela Santos.

Arredondo was charged with manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.
