Comments Off on Bond set for 3 B’ville residents arrested on meth charges

BARTLESVILLE, Okla. – Bond was set Wednesday for three Bartlesville residents arrested after drug task force officials raided their home near Ranch Heights Elementary School and found an alleged methamphetamine cooking operation.

William Anthony Allred, 60, faces charges of manufacturing methamphetamine within 2,000 feet of a school, maintaining a residence where drugs are kept, used or sold, possession of a firearm while in commission of a felony and possession of a firearm after a former conviction.

During his appearance in Washington County District Court on Wednesday, the judge set his bond to $750,000.

George Thomas Ishem III, 53, faces charges of manufacturing methamphetamine within 2,000 feet of a school. His bond was set to $500,000.

Shawnda Kay Jackson, 41, faces charges of manufacturing methamphetamine within 2,000 feet of a school and maintaining a residence where drugs are kept, used or sold. The judge set her bond to $500,000.

According to the probable cause affidavit, at around 7 p.m. Tuesday, officials with the 11the Judicial District Drug Task Force served a search warrant on a residence on the 1400 block of S.E. Lakeview Ct.

Officials spoke to Allred who told them both Ishem and Jackson both reside with him at that address but in the northeastern bedroom.

Furthermore, he said officers would not find any methamphetamine in the house, according to the report.

One officer though entering the garage found a number of items indicative of methamphetamine cooking via the “one-pot” or “shake and bake” method. Among those items were a can of camping fuel, stripped lithium batteries, cold packs, drain cleaner and empty pseudoephedrine blister packs. Also located in the garage was a syringe with contents that field tested for methamphetamine.

When officials confronted Allred, Ishem and Jackson —by then all detained in the home’s dining room — about the findings in the garage, Allred told them he knew nothing about a meth lab adding that he was not a cook, just a meth user, said the affidavit.

After being placed under arrest and while being walked out to a patrol car, Allred then reportedly told officers Jackson was the cook.

Officers then searched both bedrooms on the north end of the house and found in the northeast room a digital scale, among other items, and in the northwest room, a .22 caliber rifle, two boxes of .22 caliber ammunition, a leather pistol case containing a magazine and .40 caliber ammunition.

Later as officers booked Allred at the Washington County jail, Allred reportedly cursed at an investigators and threatened him, telling him he knew where he lived and that he will put a bullet in between the eyes of the investigator when he gets out of jail.
