STRATFORD – The Honeyspot Motel wasn’t a sweet spot for a couple arrested on multiple drug charges on March 26.
It was the sound of a scuffle and a barking dog in one of the rooms that led an individual to provide an anonymous tip to a patrol officer that a disturbance was taking place in room 111 at 12:43 a.m.
Police said a woman with a bump on her forehead and a small amount of blood on her head answered the motel room door. Inside, police said, was a man lying on the bed with a crack pipe on his lap. Officers searched the man, Alpheus Jefferson, 50, and reportedly found crack cocaine on his person. Nearby was a screwdriver with burnt residue on it. Jefferson reportedly told police that he used the screwdriver as a push rod for the crack pipe.
Meanwhile, the woman, identified as Carmen Fontanez, 49, was sitting in a chair with the two dogs when police reportedly observed her trying to hide drugs. A female officer, who was called to the scene to search Fontanez, stated that Fontanez pulled a crack pipe, a clear baggy with crack and some folds of heroin from her underwear.
Both Fontanez and Jefferson were arrested on multiple drug charges. Check out the full report for more information.
