GALLIA COUNTY, Ohio (WSAZ) -- Three people are facing drug charges after getting arrested at a hotel.

The Gallia County Sheriff's Office, Gallipolis Department and Ohio Highway Patrol executed a search warrant at the Budget Inn l on Jackson Pike around 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

Deputies say they had received complaints about drug trafficking in some of the motel's rented rooms.

According to the Gallia County Sheriff's Office, heroin and other drug related items were found in one of the rooms.

"The trio (arrestees) participated in an enterprise of corrupt activity making a business of selling heroin out of the hotel. They had separate rooms on separate floors they were storing and selling heroin out of. The amount of foot traffic into and out of the hotel was one indicator of drug sales, along with recent thefts in the area that included car break-ins and burglaries we feel was being done by 'addicted purchasers' to get funding to buy heroin from these offenders," said Sheriff Joe Browning.

Amanda L. Burns, 32, Eric S. Greer, 38, and Ronda L. Jamison, 30, all of Gallia County, were all arrested and charged with aggravated possession of drugs.

More charges are pending.
