Five Sequoyah County residents were arrested during the early morning hours of Wednesday, October 28 during a joint drug raid conducted by the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Homeland Security.
Sequoyah County Sheriff Larry Lane stated on Wednesday that the two organizations “teamed up to simultaneously serve two narcotic search warrants and two narcotic related arrest warrants in eastern Sequoyah County.”
Officers executed search and arrest warrants at the residence of David Marr, 54, north of Muldrow, in the Long community as well as at the home of his son, Vincent Marr, 32, on South Cottonwood Road, east of Muldrow. Officers recovered “items and substances consistent with the distribution and use of methamphetamines” as well as firearms at both residences, Lane said.
As a result of the raids, five people were arrested and booked into the Sequoyah County Jail. Lane stated that the warrants are the culmination of a three-month investigation into methamphetamine distribution in Sequoyah County tagged as “Operation Like Father, Like Son.”
Lane stated that the investigation revealed that the “ring-leaders were a father and son duo and the two are believed to be responsible for a very large amount of methamphetamine that has been distributed in Sequoyah County for quite some time.”
During the course of the investigation narcotics agents made numerous purchases of methamphetamines from both David and Vincent Marr. Information received during the investigation was also corroborated by downloading information from numerous electronic devices seized in the raid.
Methamphetamine confiscated during the raid.
Arrests and charges resulting from the raids include:
David Marr, 54, Muldrow: Felony arrest warrant for Distribution of CDS-methamphetamine and Unlawful use of communication device, plus new charges of Trafficking Methamphetamine, possession of firearm in commission of felony, felon in possession of firearm, drug paraphernalia. No bond was set.
Vincent Marr, 32, Muldrow: Felony arrest warrant for distribution of CDS-methamphetamine and unlawful use of communications device. No Bond was set.
Angela Hendricks, 44, Muldrow: Possession of CDS-methamphetamine with intent to distribute, and drug paraphernalia. Hendricks’ bond was set at $25,000.
Ronald Waycaster, 56, Muldrow: Possession of CDS-methamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Waycaster’s bond was set at $6,000.
Drew Harvey, 35 of Muldrow: Possession of CDS-methamphetamine. Harvey’s bond was set at $15,000.
“Investigator Chris Grizzle once again put together a great case against the meth dealers. This case was actually already made before they even did the raids today. The amount of meth that was found today was just a bonus to the case,” Lane stated.
