A 28-year-old Muldrow man was charged with a felony after allegedly bringing contraband into a jail facility.
Zachary Adam Marchant faces up to five years in the State Penitentiary if convicted in the case, and/or a fine of up to $1,000.
According to an arrest report, on Jan. 21, a Sequoyah County Sheriff’s deputy assisting on a call about a car accident encountered Marchant, who asked what had happened and wanted to speak with one of the parties involved.
The deputy recognized Marchant and knew he had an outstanding Sequoyah County warrant, so he was arrested. Asked several times if he had anything illegal on him, Marchant denied he was carrying. When he was transported to the Sequoyah County Jail, however, a jailer found two syringes in his jacket pockets.
Marchant’s next court appearance is set for 9 a.m. March 5 before Judge Kyle Waters.
