Authorities say two men have been arrested at a Lake Tahoe hotel-casino on allegations of selling illegal prescription medications and other drugs out of their hotel room.
Ryan Daniel Ferreira, 24, of South Lake Tahoe, Calif., and Garrett Jay Churchill, 24, of Goodyear, Ariz., were arrested Tuesday night by Douglas County sheriff’s deputies and investigators with a regional drug task force.
Authorities say one of the suspects admitted to conducting more than 40 drug sales from the hotel room.
Investigators say they seized 22 Oxycontin pills, small amounts of marijuana and hashish, drug paraphernalia and about $3,000 in suspect drug proceeds.
