Huntingdon police find drugs, money in hotel
HUNTINGDON – Police recovered a hoard of cocaine, heroin and cash Wednesday at a Huntingdon County motel after staff tipped them off to three suspicious guests, state troopers said.
Police charged Kevin Creswell, 29, of Mount Union; Hannah Wykoff, 22, of Three Springs; and Edward Scott, 35, of Willow Hill, Franklin County; with possession and conspiracy to deliver heroin and cocaine.
Officers allegedly recovered 751 stamp bags of heroin, four ounces of cocaine and more than $6,700 in cash from the suspects’ rooms and cars.
State Police Cpl. Daniel Sneath said officers and county detectives hurried to the Huntingdon Motor Inn after receiving a call Wednesday afternoon.
“Literally, as soon as we got the information, we began conducting interviews … so we could obtain the first search warrant,” Sneath said.
In the motel’s Room 2, officers allegedly found Creswell and Wykoff with heroin, cash, digital scales and sheets detailing owed payments.
Creswell allegedly told police that Scott, staying in a nearby room, had asked the pair to “hold” the heroin on his behalf. Scott, allegedly being sought on an arrest warrant in Franklin County, would likely have cocaine nearby when found, Creswell reportedly told officers.
Police allegedly watched Scott drop a black bag in his Jeep before returning to his room. Officers arrested him, searched his room and car and allegedly discovered cocaine and heroin.
Police valued the group’s alleged drugs at $35,000 total.
Court documents indicate Scott faces charges including aggravated assault and witness intimidation in Franklin County.
The trio were charged and held at Huntingdon County Jail in lieu of $125,000 bail each.
Hearings are scheduled Tuesday before Orbisonia Magisterial District Judge Mary G. Jamison.
