PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- Six people have been arrested for suspected illegal drug activity after search warrants were served at Prescott area motels, according to the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office.

Detectives with the Prescott Police Department and Partners Against Narcotics Trafficking developed information about the alleged activity earlier this month from an investigation into fraudulent schemes.

Multiple search warrants were served at two local motels, resulting in the arrests of 26-year-old Jennifer Nichols, 54-year-old Diana Springs, 41-year-old Cynthia Castillo, 21-year-old Marcos Larrazolo, 20-year-old Gloria Castillo and 29-year-old Matthew Masing.

All suspects were booked into the Yavapai County Jail.

Officers recovered methamphetamine, marijuana, heroin, hallucinogenic mushrooms and three weapons.
