A 42-year-old Spiro man, after he was stopped for a traffic violation south of Sallisaw on U.S. Highway 59 at the Arkansas River, was arrested after over 30 grams of suspected methamphetamines and an unlisted amount of marijuana were found in his vehicle.
Jason Oscar Linebarger was booked into the Sequoyah County Jail in Sallisaw shortly after 6 p.m. Tuesday for trafficking in illegal drugs, driving with a suspended license and possession of a controlled substance. He was released on a $25,000 bond on Wednesday.
He is due to appear in Sequoyah County District Court in Sallisaw on Feb. 1 to answer the charges.
Linebarger was already free on a $10,000 bond for a conspiracy charge in Sequoyah County District Court.
In district court, Linebarger has been found guilty on four other felony charges and two misdemeanors, Sheriff Larry Lane pointed out.
