LATHAM -- Six people are facing charges after an investigation of drug sales from a Loudon Road motel last week.

Colonie Police, acting on information from the Saratoga County Sheriff's Office, obtained a search warrant for a room at the Golden Circle Motel, 706 Loudon Road, and made the arrests Friday evening.

Two illegal handguns, cocaine, heroin, marijuana and drug paraphernalia were found inside the motel room, police said.

According to Colonie Police, those charged include Jason P. Morelli, 35, of 12 Francis St., Mechanicville; Daniel M. Dingley Jr., 46, of 3 Andrea Court, Apt. 3, Clifton Park; Lana C. Dugan, 31, also of 3 Andrea Court; Glenn S. Grock, 45, of 4 Cemetery Road, Mechanicville; Robert I., McConnell, 23, of 79 6th Ave., Apt. 1, Troy; and Dominick M. Lashway, 21, of 780 Livingston Ave., 1st Floor, Albany.

All were charged with second- and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, both felonies; and the misdemeanors of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and first-degree loitering, police said. 

Morelli also faces a count of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a felony, police said.

All six were sent to Albany County Jail to await arraignment, police said.
