Devils Lake police say that a 22-year-old woman is facing several drug charges after being arrested in connection with a disturbance in a motel parking lot.

Police were dispatched to America’s Best Value Inn on Hwy. 20 S in Devils Lake a little before 11:30 p.m. Wednesday night. After an investigation, three were arrested, including the 22-year-old. She faces the most serious charges after police allegedly discovered an unspecified amount of marijuana and hashish.

She was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of hashish, among other charges. Police believe the marijuana and hashish are from a dispensary in Colorado, and officials say they are seeing more marijuana products in the area.
