Nicholas Longstreet, who turned 36 the day of the arrest, Toni Bedwell, 25, and Megan Avans, 30, were each arrested and are scheduled to appear in Hamilton County General Sessions Court Tuesday.

According to an arrest affidavit, police executed a search warrant at room 203 and found the three inside with $15,766 in cash, the methamphetamine, approximately eight grams of marijuana, miscellaneous drug paraphernalia, ammunition, unknown pills, credit cards, gift cards and a .38 caliber Smith and Wesson revolver.

In room 222 officers found a black safe box with approximately 19 unknown pills, marijuana, scales, syringes, baggies, rolling papers and one small glass jar with a liquid that police believed to be morphine, according to the affidavit.

All three are at the Hamilton County Jail. Avans is being held without bond, Longstreet on a $150,000 bond and Bedwell with a $40,000 bond.
