Toms River Police said in a statement Thursday that the Motel 6 "has experienced a high level of call volume and narcotics activity over the last several months."

The latest response took place on Tuesday when the TRPD Special Enforcement Team pulled up to the Motel 6 to finish an investigation into drug deals taking place there.

When they executed a pair of search warrants in separate rooms at the motel, they seized 31 grams of cocaine, 29 grams of crack cocaine, 112 wax folds of heroin and other paraphernalia items utilized to distribute and manufacture narcotics.

As a result of their findings, Kasiem Davis, 46 of Monclair, and Arlene McKevitt 40 of Seaside Park were arrested.

Police then learned new information about Davis' and McKevitt's activities that led them to a room at the Desert Palm Inn in Seaside Park.

They received consent to search the room and seized an additional 12 grams of crack cocaine and 40 wax folds of heroin.

All together, police also seized a total of $4,452.00 in U.S. currency, pending forfeiture.

Davis is charged with possession of cocaine, possession of crack cocaine, possession of heroin, possession with the intent to distribute cocaine (2nd Degree), possession with the intent to distribute crack cocaine (2nd Degree) and possession with the intent to distribute heroin.

McKevitt is charged with possession of drug Paraphernalia.

Both were brought to Ocean County Jail where they remain pending their first appearance in court.

TRPD received assistance from the Toms River Emergency Services Unit, Ocean County Prosecutors Office Narcotics Strike Force and Seaside Park Police Department.
