Three men have been quizzed on suspicion of drug dealing after police swooped on a town centre hotel in Ipswich.
Police were called to the Premier Inn in Key Street following reports of potential drug dealing.
When they got there they found three men in the car park, who were arrested on suspicion of supplying Class A drugs.
A Suffolk police spokeswoman said officers had been following up on intelligence supplied to the force.
Police also searched a hotel room after allegations there was a link to one of the guests, with an estimated 100 wraps each of heroin and cocaine being recovered from the room, along with some cannabis and £1,000 cash.
No street value has been provided for the drugs, which are undergoing analysis. Three of the wraps were recovered outside the premises, according to a police spokeswoman.
Plain clothes officers carried out the arrests of the three men last Wednesday.
Two 19-year-olds and one man, 21, were taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre for questioning.
All three were later bailed to return to officers on March 18 while investigations continued.
Premier Inn said in a statement: “We can confirm police attended our Ipswich town centre hotel on January 20.
“Our team assisted police with their enquiries and due to an active police investigation we are unable to comment further.”
