Kansas Man Found Guilty Of Drug Trafficking In Texas County
12/17/2009

A Kansas man has been found guilty after trafficking over 114 pounds of marijuana near Guymon.

According to a story in the Guymon Daily Herald, a drug task force agent stopped a 2009 maroon Mazda with Kansas license plates on February 4, 2009 for speeding. The car was traveling 74mph in a 65mph zone.

After making contact with the driver, Verge A. Jeffery, the agent then deployed a K-9 on the vehicle. The dog gave a positive alert to the presence of narcotics. As a result, a search was conducted and two suitcases with two bundles of marijuana in each and a red bag that contained one more bag of marijuana in it.

All the contents of the suitcases and the bag tested positive for marijuana and it totaled 114.6 pounds. Jeffery was charged with trafficking an illegal drug (marijuana), which is a felony punishable by imprisonment for not less than four years to not more than life and a fine of not less than $25,000 and not more than $100,000. Jeffery was also convicted of two felonies in Missouri in 2002, unlawful use of a weapon and damage to a jail.

Jeffrey was found guilty on December 9 in the District Court of the First Judicial District of the State of Oklahoma sitting in and for Texas County, Okla. The jury recommended that he serve 25 years in prison and pay a fine of $100,000.

Jeffery is scheduled to be sentenced on January 12, 2010. He remains in the Texas County Detention Center.
