POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KAIT) - Acting on a tip from a “reliable source,” police arrested three people suspected of selling heroin out of a Poplar Bluff motel.

Sade Anderson, 26, and Robert J. Lewis, 39, both of St. Louis, were arrested on suspicion of selling a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Anderson was also charged with a parole violation.

Jamar Griffin, 29, of Poplar Bluff was also arrested on two arrest warrants out of Madison County for traffic offenses.

According to the incident report, officers received information from a “reliable source' that drugs were being sold out of a room at the Comfort Inn, 2582 N. Westwood Blvd.

On Friday, October 3, officers went to the motel and spoke to Anderson who reportedly gave consent for police to search the room. Officers reported finding nearly 8 grams of heroin, a set of digital scales, and $2,005 in cash.

During questioning Anderson told detectives she and Lewis had been living in Poplar Bluff since the first of August.

Anderson told investigators she and Lewis went back to St. Louis around the end of September and obtained 10 grams of heroin and brought it back to Poplar Bluff to sell.

According to the police report, Anderson identified several people as customers and said they bought as much as $100 to $200 worth of heroin each day.

Anderson is currently being held in the Butler County Jail. Lewis is being held in Dunklin County. Griffin was extradited to Madison County.

The investigation is continuing.
