Lorie Ann Dillon was charged with first-degree felony manufacture and delivery of meth, which is punishable by five to 99 years in prison, following an August investigation at a College Station Howard Johnson motel. She was taken into custody on Tuesday.

College Station police were called to the motel in the 3700 block of Texas 6 just after midnight on Aug. 14 for reports of suspicious activity.

According to court documents, a motel guest had seen men and women coming in and out of a room while the women wore wigs and provocative clothing.

As they watched the parking lot, police said Dillon walked outside, told them she had been visiting a friend and was allowed to leave the scene. Officers later learned that the room had been rented to Dillon, according to the probable cause affidavit for her arrest.

Officers were able to search the room when the motel clerk asked the non-registered guests to leave and found 38 grams of meth, police said in the affidavit. At that time, two of the occupants were arrested on unrelated warrants and were later heard, in patrol car video, discussing something “behind the toilet,” authorities said.

Police returned to the motel on Aug. 20 for reports of a man trying to break into a room. With consent from the current guest, police searched the room again to find 83.6 grams of methamphetamine behind the toilet, according to the report.

Dillon remained behind bars Thursday in lieu of $30,000 bail. It was unclear if the other two guests would be facing charges.
