Two Seymour teens were arrested in Columbus on drug-related charges after a gun was flashed at a local hotel, police say.

According to Columbus Police Department reports, officers were called to a hotel in the 2400 block of Jonathan Moore Pike at about 8 a.m. in the morning Thursday after a couple were seen acting suspiciously. That included a man displaying a handgun and a large amount of cash.

Police say that the two appeared to be under the influence of an intoxicant. A search of their room found more than a pound of marijuana, 90 Oxycodone pills, drug paraphernalia including scales and packaging materials, over $5,000 in cash and a handgun.
