Comments Off on Man on Probation for Cushing Museum Burglary Charged with Meth Possession

(Stillwater, Okla.) — A Perkins man — on probation for possessing substances with intent to manufacture methamphetamine — has been charged with possessing methamphetamine on Monday with a Tryon woman and also a Stillwater man who is on probation for breaking into a Cushing museum.

 All three, Travis John Rush, 40, of Perkins, Magen Marie McVey, 34, of Tryon, and Lewis Allen Summers Jr., 37, of Stillwater, remain in the Payne County Jail, a sheriff’s spokesman told KUSH Tuesday afternoon.

Seven years ago, Rush was ordered into the Payne County Drug Court program as a condition of a 10-year probationary sentence for possessing the drug and possessing substances with intent to manufacture methamphetamine in 2004, court records show.

On Tuesday, Rush was charged as a co-defendant with McVey and Summers with again possessing methamphetamine and also a right-hand leather glove containing a used syringe and small baggy containing methamphetamine on Monday.

Summers was also charged with transferring a product containing pseudoephedrine on Monday to Rush, who was allegedly endeavoring to use it to manufacture methamphetamine.

Earlier this year, Summers was given a six-month jail term followed by seven years of probation for breaking into Dodrill’s Museum in Cushing in January.

Asked why he committed the crime, Summers said, “he was strung out on dope and addicted to meth,” Cushing Police Detective Adam Harp wrote in an affidavit.

If convicted of his drug charges filed Tuesday, Summers could be incarcerated for 31 years and fined $31,000.

If convicted of their drug charges filed Tuesday, Rush and McVey could be incarcerated for 21 years and fined $21,000.
