Staff Report Published:

A Kent man is facing drug possession charges after Streetsboro police found crystal methamphetamine, marijuana and prescription drugs in his hotel room.

Streetsboro police arrested Brian K. Crawford, 32, of Kent Tuesday and charged him with possession of drugs, a second-degree felony.

According to a Streetsboro police news release, the department investigated a report of possible drug activity at a room in the Fairfield Inn on Route 14. When police arrived, the occupants of the hotel room gave officers consent to search the room.

Officers found one ounce of crystal methamphetamine, along with marijuana and prescription pills. Streetsboro police officials estimated the street value of the methamphetamine at $6,000, and described it as having a "purity," which distinguished it from typical homemade methamphetamine.

According to the Streetsboro police, Christina L. Dunham, 32, of Kent, was also arrested at the scene and charged with complicity to drug possession, a felony of the second degree.

The Streetsboro Police Department has turned the investigation of the case over to the Portage County Drug Task Force.
