A Roland man is facing felony drug and firearms possession charges after his Sept. 5 arrest by Sequoyah County Sheriff’s deputies.
Records show that deputies were serving a search warrant on the home of Ryan Reese in Roland. Receiving no response to their knock at the door, deputies entered the residence and found Raymond Reese, 52, in a bedroom.
Along with Reese, deputies found a set of operational digital scales and a bent metal spoon that had a white crystalline residue on them. Deputies also discovered a glass smoking device with a burned residue inside it.
Inside a bedroom closet, deputies discovered a Stevens 12-gauge, bolt-action rifle, an England .303-caliber rifle and a Marlin model 25.
Raymond Reese was charged with possession of a firearm after former felony conviction and possession of a controlled dangerous substance, both felonies. A check of Reese’s criminal history reveals that he was convicted in 2007 of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in Pittsburg County, Okla.
He was subsequently arrested and transported to the Sequoyah County Jail and was released on $16,000 bond. His next court appearance is at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 18.
The charge of possession of a firearm after former felony conviction is a felony punished by imprisonment for up to 10 years. The drug possession charge carries a penalty of imprisonment for up to one year and by a fine of up to $1,000.
