Over the course of two days this week, Johnson City police arrested two men at the same local motel on drug charges.

Tuesday, police charged Jeremy Clark, 30, Tallasssee, Alabama, with felony possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. Police were investigated what was described as a suspicious vehicle at Red Roof Inn, 210 Broyles Drive, and searching his vehicle, they found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia in a hidden compartment, according to a news release.

Wednesday, police were back at the Red Roof, where they arrested Cheyenne Lowery, 35, no address available. About 5 p.m., they found Lowery in his room and searched it, finding large quantities of Xanax and marijuana and “other evidence that indicated Mr. Lowery was selling narcotics,” police said in a second news release.

Lowery was charged with possession of schedule VI narcotics for resale, possession of schedule IV narcotics for resale, maintaining a dwelling where drugs are sold and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Both men were jailed at the Washington County Detention Center. Clark’s bond was $7,500, and he was to appear Wednesday in Sessions Court. Lowery’s bond was $20,000, and he was set to appear Thursday in Sessions Court.

In January 2014, Lowery was charged with possession of a schedule VI controlled substance for resale (marijuana), possession of a prohibited weapon, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving on revoked license second offense, violation of the financial responsibility law and failure to illuminate tag. At the time, police said they found three bags of marijuana, nearly $1,000 in cash and brass knuckles with Lowery during a traffic stop.
