A Wayne, Okla., man faces four drug-related charges in Sequoyah County District Court, Sallisaw, after he was allegedly found to have methamphetamine, heroin and marijuana in his possession when he was stopped for traffic violations on Interstate 40.
Robert Dewayne Beaver, 44, was charged Aug. 10 in district court with two counts of trafficking in illegal drugs, one count of unlawful possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute, and a misdemeanor count of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported Beaver was driving east on I-40 on Aug. 3 when an Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP) trooper saw he was following another vehicle too closely and was drifting from lane to lane. Beaver was stopped near the 300 Mile Marker.
According to the OHP trooper’s report, Beaver admitted to smoking marijuana after he refused to let the trooper search his vehicle.

Also found were a digital scale and a butane lighter.
Beaver was arrested and booked into the Sequoyah County Detention Center in Sallisaw on the above charges.
His next court appearance is set for 9 a.m. Sept. 14 on Associate District Judge Kyle Waters disposition docket.
