Officials received a complaint of suspicious activity at a motel room in the America’s Best Value Inn. Officers checked the registered occupant of the room, Lonnie Spence, 21, of Celina, and began observing the area. A vehicle belonging to Spence was located on East Market Street where it was stopped near the intersection of state Route 703.
