Longview, TX (KLTV)  A warrant search at a hotel by Gregg County officers turns up a wanted suspect, and something they didn't expect, a meth-amphetamine.

Code agents stormed a room at the Quality Inn on Spur 63 late Friday.  Once inside, agents found their suspect along with a woman. They also found a large quantity of ice- meth amphetamine.   28 year old Jaclyn Ann McAlpine was arrested and charged with the manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance.

"During that arrest in plain view they found about half an ounce of crystal meth-amphetamine or ice meth-amphetamine in plain view, a search warrant was brought for the room," said Longview police sergeant David Scott.

McAlpine is free after posting bond. The other suspect arrested has not been identified.
