  • “He might be selling small amounts to one other individual, from time to time, that’s what we can confirm,” Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics spokesman Mark Woodward said.

    “We’re not talking about pounds and kilos, it would be in the gram quantities, that you might see somebody try to purchase to feed their addiction.”

    Bureau Director Donnie Anderson added: “Meth is the leading killer among drug-related deaths in Oklahoma. And for a peace officer to be responsible for putting more meth on the streets is a disgrace to the proud men and women in law enforcement who put their lives on the line every day to protect our citizens from the deadly consequences of substance abuse.”
