An 18-year-old man is behind bars on multiple felony charges after guns and drugs were found in a Boise motel room on Wednesday, police said.

Jadon Castro, 18, of Boise, was booked into the Ada County Jail on three counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, drug trafficking in marijuana and altering identification numbers.

Police responded to service call at the Cabana Inn on Main Street where they found several juveniles and teenage adults in a motel room.

After an investigation into reported drug use, assault and a runaway, police said, they searched the room and found large quantities of drugs and two guns. 

One of the guns had the serial numbers ground off.

According to investigators, the drugs included nearly 1.5 pounds of marijuana, 15 grams of cocaine, 5.4 grams of MDMA, four packages of LSD and other drug paraphernalia.

Police say they found evidence that Castro was in possession of the drugs and had intent to deliver them. He's also accused of being in possession of a gun with "an obliterated serial number."
