Police arrested a 29-year old Ketchikan man on Saturday after seizing large quantities of illegal and prescription drugs in a hotel room.
According to court documents, a staff member at Ketchikan’s Cape Fox Lodge called police after discovering drug paraphernalia in Corey Andrew Jackson’s room. In a sworn statement, police say Jackson answered the door of room 228 and “admitted he had ‘a couple grams’ of drugs in the room.”
Police say that was an understatement. They reportedly seized 82 grams of meth and 73.7 grams of heroin, plus 25.4 grams of oxycodone tablets and 13 Xanax tablets while executing a search warrant on the room.
He faces four felony charges, including possession with the intent to distribute. The public defender’s office did not return a request for comment Monday.
Police say they also recovered more than $12,000 in cash, a digital scale and a roll of unused plastic bags. Jackson has a 2018 conviction for possessing methamphetamine in Oregon.
As of Monday, Jackson was being held at at Ketchikan Correctional Center in lieu of $100,000 cash bail.
