A hotel manager called police Saturday morning after she recognized a woman who allegedly had used forged credit cards to make numerous unauthorized purchases, according to a police report.
The manager called and told police that the woman was at the hotel in the 1400 block of Centre Place Drive and could possibly be trying to use forged credit cards again, the report stated.
The manager gave the woman a room even though her cards were not accepted. When officers reached the room and were preparing to knock, the door opened and they saw two men who were about to leave.
The men stepped back from the doorway and as they did, one dropped a small amount of narcotics, according to the report.
The woman was sitting at a small table inside the room, allegedly in the process of committing another forgery, the report stated. Officers secured the room and obtained a search warrant. The officers arrested the woman and the two men for fraudulent use of personal information and possession of a controlled substance.
