On Thursday morning, deputies were investigating a robbery at the Motel 6 on West Leffel Lane that happened earlier in the week, according to a police report. The suspects, including Coleman, allegedly were staying at the motel, the report says.

Two suspects were found walking into the motel about 11:15 a.m. and were followed to the second floor by officers. Once the men saw the deputies, they began running and exited through the back door of the hotel, the report says.

Deputies allegedly saw Coleman throw something “the size of a baseball” as he left the building. The suspects were quickly detained by deputies and Coleman was placed in the Clark County Jail.

The baggie allegedly contained several different narcotics, including 21 grams of a tan powder substance believed to be either heroin or fentanyl, 14 grams of a white rock-like substance and about 260 pills believed to be Oxycodone. Deputies also searched Coleman’s car and allegedly found two baggies containing about 26 grams of a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana.
