Drug Arrest In Guymon Nets Over 10 Pounds Marijuana

Three men were arrested and charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute.

According to a report in the Guymon Daily Herald, officers conducted a traffic stop on a white 2001 GMC Savana van bearing a Minnesota tag for a speeding violation. The driver of the vehicle was identified as Michael Warren Pinkerton, 36. There were also two passengers in the van, Keyeon M. Carson, 27, and Marcus A. McGill, 26.

After conducting the traffic stop, officers then requested for consent to search the vehicle which all three occupants agreed to.

The officer began the search and found a small clear plastic bag containing a green leafy substance on the floor. He continued to search and also found plastic bags hidden inside of a panel in the drivers side door, behind the captains chairs, under the window, and above the rear stereo console. Upon further investigation, five plastic bags containing a green leafy substance in brick style shapes were found in the panel.

The "bricks" were weighed and tested. The substance came back positive for marijuana and the weight totaled approximately 10.1 pounds.

The suspects were transported to the task force building where a criminal history check was done on Pinkerton, Carson, and McGill. The check came back with prior felony drug charges for all three men. They were all interviewed and later transported to the Texas County Detention center, according to the document.

The three are still incarcerated with $85,000 bonds a piece.

The charge of Unlawful possession of controlled drug with intent to distribute, marijuana , within 2000 feet of school or park is a felony punishable by imprisonment for not less than four years to not more than life and a fine of up to $20,000. The second charge, possession of cds without tax stamp affixed is a felony that is punishable by up to 5 years imprisonment and/or a fine of $10,000.
