A Muldrow man was arrested March 17 and charged with trafficking in illegal drugs, according to court records.
Homer Jay Teague, 58, was also charged with the unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor.
On March 16, a Sequoyah County Sheriff’s deputy was on patrol when he was dispatched to County Roads 4750 and 1054 in reference to a four-wheeler riding on the roadway and disturbing the neighbors.
When the deputy arrived, he saw the four-wheeler traveling northbound on 4750 Road and could hear its loud exhaust. He conducted a traffic stop and made contact with Teague, the driver.
Teague informed the deputy that he was riding around with his daughter and was about to head home.
While the deputy was examining the four-wheeler’s Vehicle Identification Number, he saw Teague walk to the shoulder of the road and toss a baggie containing a white substance toward the woods. When asked what he threw, Teague denied throwing anything, but upon investigation, the deputy recognized the baggie’s contents as methamphetamine.
Teague was placed in handcuffs and a search of his pockets turned up an additional bag containing a white, crystalline substance. He was then arrested.
Back at the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office, the drugs, which weighed 26.1 grams, field-tested positive for methamphetamine.
