TULSA, Okla — On Saturday, February 12th, Tulsa police served a search warrant on a room at an Extended Stay Hotel.

The search warrant stemmed from an investigation into street level narcotic sales. Officers found three adults, two elderly individuals, and three dogs living in one of the three room suites.

During the search officers found marijuana, methamphetamine, and two loaded firearms.

Police said it was apparent the suspects were distributing and selling marijuana, methamphetamine, and other controlled substances to the homeless population in the area.

In the second story room officers found a 73-year-old woman who had been sleeping on a sofa. The woman could barely stand and told officers she wasn't sure how long it had been since she left the room. Officers also found an elderly man sleeping on a small cot in the kitchen area. Both were transported to a local hospital.

Police arrested Sharlie Anderson, William Sapp, and Demarco cox on charges of possession of controlled drugs with intent to distribute, possession of firearms in commission of a felony, possession of firearms after a felony conviction, and possession of stolen property.

Two dirty scottie dogs and a chihuahua were picked up by a local animal shelter.
