LAWTON, Okla._Four people were arrested Tuesday morning for meth possession after police were tipped off on the whereabouts of a wanted woman.

Detectives with the Lawton Police Department Special Operations were tipped off that Tabitha Harrison was staying at a Lawton hotel. Harrison had a felony warrant for possession of drugs and paraphernalia, obstructing an officer, reckless driving and a failure to appear on an animal-related charge.

When detectives knocked on the door, Harrison answered and they immediately saw digital scales and meth residue. Harrison was arrested on the spot. When asked if she had anything illegal, she admitted that she had methamphetamine in her bra. Police found a baggie with 1.5 grams of meth where she said it was.

The other three people in the room—David Cochran, Amber Valdez and Hurles Anderson—were detained while police searched the room. During the search, police found a large bundle of money, around $3,200, on the bathroom floor, which Cochran claimed was his. Police also found a glass meth pipe.

During a pat down, Valdez told police she also had meth in her bra; police found a bag with 2.7 grams of meth.

Harrison was arrested for the warrants, possession of meth with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia.  Valdez and Anderson were arrested for possession of meth and possession of drug paraphernalia. Cochran was arrested for possession of meth with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia.

All four were taken to the Lawton City Jail.
