PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

An 18-year-old was arrested at a Portland hotel with one kilogram of heroin and more than $33,000 in cash, according to police.

Early Tuesday morning, East Precinct officers contacted the Drugs and Vice Division after developing information about a person dealing drugs from a local hotel room.

That information led them to 18-year-old Jose DeJesus Mejia. Police said Mejia was booked in the Multnomah County Jail on charges of manufacturing, delivery and possession of heroin.

No other details were released about the investigation.

Community members who want to provide information about drug activity in their neighborhoods can file it online at portlandoregon.gov/police/30740.
