    Wilbraham Police

    Two people have been arrested after authorities found drugs, cash and drug manufacturing equipment in a hotel room in Wilbraham, Massachusetts.

    According to police, John M. Morrison and Amanda Watson have been arrested and charged with trafficking Oxycodone, crack cocaine and concaine and possessing with intent to distribute class A, B and E drugs.

    The arrests come after a police officer was performing a security check of the Wilbraham Inn on Jan. 18 at about 2:30 a.m. and located a vehicle reported stolen from Holyoke.

    Officers then began to check the area and speak with the Inn's management in an attempt to locate the operator of the stolen vehicle, police said.
