On April 6th, Deputies with the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office responded to a local motel to investigate a complaint of a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot.
Deputies made contact with two males in a Mercedes, later identified as Juan Sanchez Jr. and Jimmy Ogle. Deputies observed, in plain view, items commonly used in the sale of narcotics. Upon searching the vehicle, over two pounds of methamphetamine and a loaded handgun were located.
Deputies then made contact with the occupants of room 120, identified as Austin Lee Hill and Lluvia Selene Reyes. Reyes identified herself as the owner of the Toyota Camry which was parked next to the Mercedes. A drug K-9 detected drugs inside the Camry, which was the basis for a search warrant to be obtained. Upon searching the Camry, deputies found methamphetamine and marijuana.
In the hotel room, more methamphetamine and a .22 caliber revolver were located in the room.
The incident led to the arrest of Jimmy Ogle, Juan Sanchez Jr., Austin Lee Hill, and Lluvia Selene Reyes on drug related charges and all were transported to the Bradley County Justice Center.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigations is also assisting in the investigation.
