Santa Monica police arrested two men inside a Santa Monica motel room Saturday, April 22nd, who were allegedly in possession of cocaine and narcotics paraphernalia.
Police were called to a motel in the 2400 block of Lincoln Boulevard at 5:09 p.m. regarding a complaint of a man threatening a woman in one of the motel rooms.
When officers arrived, they contacted the occupants of the motel room and located two men inside the room, but no woman was present.
During the police investigation the two men admitted to using narcotics and were in possession of narcotics paraphernalia, police allege.
A small amount of cocaine was allegedly found inside the motel room and both suspects were arrested for possession of cocaine, possession of narcotics paraphernalia and for being under the influence of narcotics, police said.
Police identified the suspects as a 45-year-old Los Angeles man and a 52-year-old Santa Monica man.
Bail was set at $10,000 for the Los Angeles man, but no bail was set for the Santa Monica Man, due to a parole hold, police said.
The case was presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office Monday, April 24th. District Attorney’s Office officials declined to file felony charges, referring the matter to the Santa Monica City Attorney’s Office for consideration of misdemeanor charges.
