A felony drug charge was levied Feb. 13 against a Muldrow man, police reports indicate.
Vincent Dewayne Marr, 31, was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute, which is punishable by imprisonment in the Department of Corrections for up to five years and a fine of up to $20,000.
On Feb. 13, Sequoyah County Sheriff’s deputies and investigators, along with detectives with the Sallisaw Police Department, executed a search warrant at Marr’s residence.
Marr answered the officers’ knock and allowed them inside. The officers found two children, ages 3 and 5, asleep in a bedroom of the home. A female was discovered in another bedroom.
During the search, officers found a yellow, glass smoking device on the floor beside the bed where the female was found. The device had a burned appearance that contained a white residue.
In the home’s laundry room, law enforcement officers found a black canvas bag stuck to the back of the dryer with a magnet. The bag held a blue Ziploc bag that contained 9.5 grams of a white, crystalline substance, which later field-tested positive for methamphetamine. The substance was sent to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation for further testing.
The children were released into the care of their aunt and Vincent Marr was transported to the Sequoyah County Jail for booking. The female was released with no charges.
Vincent Marr’s bond was set at $20,000 and his next court appearance is at 10:30 a.m. Feb. 26.
