The investigation began Nov. 3, when a deadly shooting took place at the Sheraton hotel on North Lake Destiny Road.

Maitland Police said they found drugs in the hotel room, which led them to believe the shooting was related to narcotics. Yunger was identified as a suspect and her office was searched, records show.

Officers said they found drugs in her office, including methamphetamine and heroin and Yunger was arrested on Nov. 10.

As the investigation moved forward, police said they developed probable cause that Yunger was directly involved in the homicide. An arrest warrant was issued on March 3 and the sheriff’s office’s tactical anti-crime squad was assigned to arrest her, according to the affidavit.

Deputies said they were surveilling her office Wednesday when they witnessed her loading several bags into a white Honda Civic with Tennessee plates.
