Sallisaw Woman Arrested for Drugs


Sequoyah County Sheriff Larry Lane said his office conducted a drug raid at about 2 p.m. Wednesday at the home of Janenne Monae Johnston, 49, north of Sallisaw.

Lane said investigators confiscated a small amount of a substance believed to be methamphetamine, scales and plastic bags.

Johnston was arrested and booked into the county jail for the unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute.

Johnston has a lengthy felony record, and faces four other charges filed just this year in Sequoyah County District Court in Sallisaw.

On March 8 Johnston was one of three suspects arrested during a traffic stop north of Vian on State Highway 82. She and the other two suspects were booked into the county jail for possession of a controlled dangerous substance. Charges in that case were filed March 15 in district court. Johnston was free on a $6,000 bond.

On Feb. 7 Johnston was charged in district court with knowingly concealing stolen property. She entered a not guilty plea to that charge, and was free on a $5,000 bond.

On March 1 Johnston was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance without a prescription and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. She entered a not guilty plea to those charges and was free of a $15,000 bond.

On March 13 Johnston was charged with a wildlife count of illegal purchase of whitetail deer racks. No plea or bond was listed for that charge.
