Officers from the Kansas City Street Narcotic Unit and SWAT arrested two today for dealing drugs out of the Capri Motel.
Around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, officers served a search warrent on the thrid floor motel room near the corner of Paseo Boulevard and Independence Avenue.
Sgt. Chip Huth, who lead the raid, said police had been watching the two for some time before they served the warrant today. The two had been living in the motel room and using it as a base for their dealing.
Huth said police have had some problems with drug dealing out of the motel in the past. Managers, who watched the arrest would not comment.
Police did not release the names of the man and the woman who were arrested.
