Bartlesville Police said an ongoing investigation into illegal drug dealing resulted in nine arrests at a local motel Thursday afternoon.
Police Captain Jay Hastings said detectives served a search warrant at the Travelers Motel on Frank Phillips Boulevard just after noon. Inside four rooms, Hastings said they recovered a stolen handgun, cell phone, money and methamphetamine.
The nine were arrested on various drug and gun-related complaints and booked into the Washington County jail.
The arrests follow a shots fired incident next to the motel in a shopping center parking lot on March 23. Thomas Myers, 36, and James Myers, 33, were arrested after Bartlesville Police were sent to the motel. Captain Hastings said one of the men involved was staying at the Travelers Motel.
