Detectives and Dartmouth police searched the State Road motel, eventually finding and arresting 29-year-old Kalvin Boule after a short investigation.

However, police did state that Boule was found to also have an unspecified amount of heroin and crack cocaine.

Boule is being charged with two counts of unarmed robbery as well as possession of both a Class A and a Class B drug.
