A Gainesville man was arrested Sunday after more than $16,800 in drugs and two guns were found in a motel room.

The Multi-Agency Narcotics Squad found about 6 ounces of methamphetamine, marijuana, oxycodone, Adderall — which is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and narcolepsy — and diazepam, an anti-anxiety medication, along with a stolen 9 mm pistol and one loaded .22-caliber revolver, in a room at the Motel 6 on Monroe Drive, according to a news release.

Andrew Harold Tostenson, 30, was charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession with the intent to distribute of methamphetamine, marijuana, oxycodone,

Adderall and diazepam. He also was charged with two counts each of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, along with felony theft by receiving. Two outstanding warrants also were served, one out of Hall County and the other out of Glynn County for probation violations. Tostenson was arrested in Hall County in July for felony possession of meth.

A Glynn County sheriff’s spokesman said it has a hold on him and will wait until Hall County’s legal process is finished before moving forward.

Tostenson was booked into the Hall County Jail. His first appearance in court was Tuesday and a committal hearing was scheduled for Sept. 16. Tostenson asked for a court-appointed attorney. He is being held without bond.
