A 30-year-old Van Buren man and a 20-year-old Fort Smith woman were arrested on Christmas Eve in Roland and charged Jan. 3 in Sequoyah County District Court with various drug violations.
Roger Vahn Ensey Jr. and Destiny Cheyanne Joslin are accused of being in possession of over 20 grams of methamphetamine, marijuana and various prescription drugs, and misdemeanor charges of possession of drug paraphernalia. Ensey also faces a misdemeanor charge of driving with a suspended license.
According to the arresting Roland police officer’s report, filed with the charges, Ensey and Joslin were arrested at about 2:40 a.m. on Dec. 24 in Roland. The officer reported Ensey was driving a 2006 Nissan Altima west on U.S. Highway 64 in Roland when he failed to dim the car’s high beam, and the low beam on the car’s right side was not working.
The officer stopped the car and found Ensey was driving with a suspended license. He was arrested and searched, and a small amount of marijuana was found in his pants pocket.
A search of the vehicle uncovered rolling papers, and a lock box, which Joslin said belonged to her mother. The box was opened later and found to contain two bags of a white crystalline substance, believed to be methamphetamine, with a combined weight of 23.9 grams, and a large number of prescription drugs that were identified as hydrocodone, oxycodone and other drugs.
Ensey and Joslin were transported to the Roland Police Department and then to the Sequoyah County Jail in Sallisaw.
Ensey was released Dec. 28 on a $10,000 bond. His next court appearance is set for Wednesday when he is to be arraigned.
Joslin was released Jan. 3 on a $39,000 bond. Her next court appearance is set for Feb. 14 on Associate District Judge Kyle Waters disposition docket.
