A housekeeping staff discovery of needles and narcotics inside a Days Inn hotel room led to the arrest Saturday of a 25-year-old Sun Prairie woman.
Officers were called to the hotel, 1201 W. College Ave., about 12:30 p.m., according to an Oak Creek police report. No one was in the room at the time, but police were told the occupants would return.
At 3:30 p.m., an officer saw a vehicle with suspended plates enter the parking lot. The officer spoke with the woman, who was a passenger in the vehicle. She admitted drugs were in the vehicle but didn't remember where she hid them, she told police.
Police found several drug paraphernalia items — dirty syringes, a metal cup and rubber bands among them — in the hotel room and vehicle, according to the report.
An officer also found $2,700 in cash on the woman's person.
She was arrested for possession of narcotics and possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and taken to county jail.
