Passed out and barely dressed is how a couple was found in College Station before being arrested for drugs.

On Wednesday, College Station Police were dispatched to the Courtyard Marriot Hotel on the 3900 block of S Hwy 6 in reference to a welfare call.

According to reports, police found Caitlin Utsler and Leland James Gaston unresponsive on the floor inside their hotel room. Both were wearing only their underwear and appeared to be extremely intoxicated on an unknown substance.

Police found drug paraphernalia scattered throughout the hotel room including hypodermic needles, cotton balls, rubbing alcohol and the bottom portion of an aluminum can which had been turned into a burner. The can had a brown substance melted inside also containing a small piece of a cotton ball.

Utsler told police she had injected Heroin which could still be located in the room. According to the report, she told police there was a small box on the floor with marijuana pipes that would possibly still have a small amount of marijuana in it.

During a search of the hotel room 6 used hypodermic needles, the aluminum can with the brown melted substance and a brown knife with an unknown brownish earthy material were located on the table of the room. Also located on the table were 2 AA "batteries" which when the bottom is twisted, reveal hidden compartments. Gaston told police the knife belonged to him and he had purchased the Heroin that was melted inside the aluminum can. Gaston said the batteries were used to carry the Heroin inside the hotel room.

On the floor in front of the dresser a small yellow wooden box was located with three marijuana inhalant devices, a "whip-it" canister and a canister to administer the "whip-it." A "whip-it" is a NO2, or nitrous oxide canister which when punctured and inhaled causes a temporary "intoxication" due to the lack of oxygen to the brain. Also was a small usable amount of marijuana in a cellophane cigarette wrapper.

Both were arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of Marijuana.
