The Muldrow Police Department arrested eight suspects over a three-day period last week on various drug-related charges, and confiscated about a half-ounce of methamphetamines, marijuana, drug paraphernalia and many guns.
Muldrow Police Chief George Lawson said Muldrow police initiated and conducted the investigation, with the assistance of the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office and an investigator with the District Attorney’s Task Force.
Lawson said the first search warrant was served at a county residence at Cottonwood and Shamblin Road. Kevin King, 32, was arrested there and suspected methamphetamine seized. King was still being held in the Sequoyah County Jail on Tuesday.
The second search warrant was served at Dogwood and Southeast 11th Street in Muldrow. Marcus Mitchell, 44, was arrested there and booked into the county jail. He was free on bond as of Tuesday.
The third search warrant was served at a residence on Redland Road, outside Muldrow town limits. Adam Walters, 34, was arrested there and an unlisted amount of marijuana seized. Walters was booked into the county jail and was free on bond Tuesday. “We found quite a few guns in Walters’ house too,” Lawson said.
The fourth search warrant was served in Muldrow at Southwest 10th and Enid Street. Stormy Metheny, 41, was arrested there. Metheny was booked on possession of controlled, dangerous substances with the intent to distribute and within 1000 feet of a school. He was free on bond as of Tuesday.
Lawson said all four face charges of possession of controlled dangerous substances, possession of drug paraphernalia and other charges.
Also arrested were four others who are relatives, friends or business partners of the four suspects.
Lawson said the four primary suspects may have known one another but were not working together.
“There were basically stand-alone selling drugs to people in Muldrow,” Lawson said.
At least one more warrant may be served for another suspect, he added.
Lawson said, “It’s time,” to stop the drug traffic in Muldrow
“I’ve got a lot of guys here wanting to make the town better,” he said. “We’re ready for more.”
