CATOOSA — Catoosa police say they arrested several people after a major drug bust at a casino hotel in Catoosa.

Police say officers were on a trespassing call when they noticed people hiding items in a mattress and other spots.

Officers say they found almost a pound of meth, some heroin, ecstasy, 87 Xanax bars, and what they say appears to be PCP.

They say all of that was in a room and a car, along with about $23,000.

"They've got a little bit of everything and a large amount of cash," said Catoosa Police PIO Officer Brent Colbert. "They are selling drugs, so for us to stop that is great because it stops the flow of drugs in our community stop the flow of drugs into other communities."

Police say seven people were arrested.
