Kayla Marie Lamere is facing the pending charges of felony criminal possession with intent to distribute and misdemeanor criminal possession of drug paraphernalia.
Court documents state that a Quality Inn Employee contacted police to report the meth-filled hotel room that King and Lamere had checked out of on the afternoon of November 15th.
Officers seized two large crystals each around half the size of a golf ball.
Later that day, Officers detained King and seized the car he was operating, a black Chevy Monte Carlo, which was registered in another person’s name.
Officers then obtained a search warrant and inspected the car.
Among the items found in the car were two large crystal balls of methamphetamine, as well as other paraphernalia and a digital scale. The total aggregate weight of the methamphetamine was 52 grams.
In the passenger seat, there was a purse with an ID card for Lamere. Inside the purse was a small plastic container with methamphetamine and three syringes with an unknown liquid.
In the rear passenger seat, there were multiple used syringes. In a backpack in the vehicle, there were 19 bags of new syringes. Each pack had 10 syringes. There were also syringes located in the trunk. All were seized as evidence.
In total, over 70 grams of presumed methamphetamine were seized with a street value of around $7,200.
