Killeen police arrested five people who are believed to have been selling drugs at a Killeen motel.

Police charged Tina Jackson, 21; Vaughn Martise Aubrey Evans, 24; Thadius Baker, 35; Cassyne Viran Malveaux, 31; and Lamar Wilson, 22, with possession of a controlled substance, 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams.

Police arrested the five suspects Friday evening after raiding a room at the Economy Motel, 817 E. Veterans Memorial Blvd.

Officers found unspecified amounts of methamphetamine and cocaine inside the room, according to an arrest affidavit.

Malveaux allegedly attempted to keep officers out of the room by closing the door and locking it. She later confessed to being a cocaine dealer, the affidavit stated.

Police found the other four suspects standing near various amounts of cocaine.

Officers said they found methamphetamine on Wilson, and Baker allegedly was seen attempting to swallow some of the cocaine after officers entered the motel room.

Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke arraigned the five suspects, setting their bail at $50,000 each.

Jail records indicate Wilson also was charged with debit card abuse.

All suspects except Baker remained in Bell County Jail on Monday night.

Cooke also arraigned Martin Jesse Arcos, 24, on a charge of driving while intoxicated with a child passenger. Arcos’ bail was set at $20,000.
