Police are searching for a man deemed armed and dangerous after he fled a motel room with illegal drugs inside, resulting in the arrest of a Florida woman.

An officer with the Lake Wales Police Department noticed a vehicle parked in front of room number five at the Prince of Wales Motel that matches a vehicle usually driven by Carlos Williams, 24, who is wanted for multiple violent felonies.

Williams is wanted on aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence charges.

Police spoke with the occupant of room number five, Shanell Mickel, 43, who informed the officer that Williams was not in the room at the time, but had been there before.

Mickel allowed officers into the motel room, where they noticed cocaine and Xanax on the furniture, but officers did not find Williams inside.

The officer then requested that LWPD detectives obtain a search warrant for the room.

They located 171.6 grams of cocaine, 193 Xanax pills weighing 72.6 grams, 24 hydrocodone pills weighing 17.7 grams, as well as a scale with traces of cocaine, small bags, and other miscellaneous paraphernalia.
