Six people were taken into custody around 9 p.m. Friday after law-enforcement officers raided the Sanford Motel on U.S. Highway 1. The motel's manager and two employees were among those detained, said Lee County Sheriff Tracy Carter.
About an hour before the raid, an undercover officer bought a small amount of crack cocaine at the motel’s office, authorities said.
Inside the motel, officers found roughly five grams of crack and various paraphernalia, including a digital scale.
