Comments Off on Police reportedly find over 300 grams of Methamphetamine after east Tulsa pursuit; Tharon Aaron Woodard, 32, arrested

Police reportedly found over 300 grams of methamphetamine and a slew of other drugs after a short pursuit early Saturday in east Tulsa.

The chase began just after midnight near the area of 6900 East Easton Street when a Tulsa police officer reportedly saw a vehicle fail to signal a right turn, according to an arrest and booking report.

The officer followed the vehicle and attempted to pull it woodardover near 7100 East Haskell Street, but the vehicle continued westbound on East Easton Street. It reportedly weaved through the area of East Archer Street and stopped near the area of 4200 East First Street, according to an arrest and booking report.

Officers arrested Tharon Aaron Woodard, 32, at the scene on suspicion of eluding after a felony conviction, no insurance or security verification, no driver’s license and failure to signal a right turn, according to jail records.

Police searched Woodard’s vehicle and reportedly found a white, crystal-like substance on the driver’s seat that tested positive for methamphetamine, baggies of marijuana, loose prescription pills and LSD stored in aluminum foil, the report states.

After officers reviewed film of the chase, they searched the area of 5200 East Archer Street and reportedly found 336 grams of methamphetamine and located a black handgun a few blocks away, according to the report.

Those findings prompted officers to add possession of a controlled substance after a felony conviction, trafficking methamphetamine with a prior controlled substance felony conviction, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute after a felony conviction and possession of a firearm in commission of a felony after a felony conviction to Woodard’s arrest offenses, according to jail records.

Woodard is being held in Tulsa Jail in lieu of $106,600 bond, jail records indicate.

Woodard finished a five-year sentence Aug. 23 for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle after a felony conviction and unlawful possession of a controlled drug after a felony conviction, according to Department of Corrections records. He was set to serve a suspended sentence for the similar 2012 felony convictions until Aug. 20, 2016.
