A Muldrow couple was arrested Sept. 5 on three felony charges, records show.
Holly Elizabeth Marr, 26, and Vincent DeWayne Marr, 31, were each charged with drug trafficking, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and child neglect, as well as misdemeanor charges of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
Records reveal that Sequoyah County Sheriff’s deputies went to the couple’s residence to serve a state search warrant. When no one answered their knock, deputies entered the home.
Deputies found the Marrs and one of their children, a 3-year-old girl, inside the home. Another daughter, age 5, was found in a truck parked outside the residence.
A search of the home turned up a black bag containing nearly 60 grams of a white crystalline substance, an operational set of digital scales, a 12-gauge shotgun and a lever-action .30-.30 rifle.
A search of Vincent Marr also revealed an additional plastic bag containing the same substance in his left front pocket.
Field tests identified the drugs as methamphetamine.
The Marrs were then arrested and transported to the Sequoyah County Jail. They were released on $43,000 bond each.
Their most recent court appearance was Sept. 11.
The drug trafficking charge is punishable by four years to life in prison and a fine of up to $50,000. Child neglect carries a punishment of up to life in the Department of Corrections, a fine of up to $500 or both. The weapons charge is punishable by up to 10 years in prison. The drug paraphernalia possession count has a punishment of up to a year in prison, a fine of up to $1,000 or both.
