SWAT Team Arrests Suspected Meth Dealer at Local Hotel

Corpus Christi police arrested a man accused of selling methamphetamine out of a local hotel room in Corpus Christi Friday afternoon.

Police got a tip that a felon who was wanted in another county happened to be in our area. They found that the suspect was staying at a hotel off Leopard Street and set up surveillance at the hotel on Thursday, along with a sting operation.

After officers managed to purchase meth from the suspect, they got a search warrant and the Corpus Christi Police Department SWAT Team moved in and arrested him.

"I think out of, whatever county he was out of, things were probably already heated up. He was facing criminal charges there and he decided to get to this area," CCPD Captain David Cook said. "He obviously had some connections in Corpus Christi because he was selling."

Inside the suspect's hotel room, police found meth, marijuana, guns, ammunition and other drug paraphernalia for distributing drugs. A female who was in the room was also arrested.

The male suspect now faces several charges.
