Comments Off on Former Big Cabin police chief, Brian Mossier, and wife, Jamie Mossier, arrested for Methamphetamine lab in Mayes County

A Mayes County couple was arrested Friday and are facing multiple felony charges each.

The investigation, according to Investigator Wayne Stinnett of the District 12 District Attorney’s Office, started over a year ago.579d5926ab0e5_image

“We started looking at Brian and Jamie Mossier’s purchase of pseudoephedrine,” he said. “And during the course of the year they were buying a lot more than would be consistent with someone purchasing for legitimate uses. Our suspicion was that they were purchasing the pseudoephedrine to manufacture methamphetamine. They were denied purchase multiple times for exceeding the limit.”

The investigation switched gears last week, he said, when the chief of the Big Cabin Police Department contacted Stinett.

“He called and informed me that he believed Mr. Mosier still had a fuel card he obtained during his time as Big Cabin police chief,” he said, adding that Mossier left the department in 2014 and has been using the card to purchase fuel since that time.

Surveillance footage confirmed, Stinnett said, and a search warrant for their residence was asked for and received.

Friday afternoon the multi-jurisdictional STOP taskforce (strategically targeted offender program) served the warrant.

Meth labs were found in two rooms of the residence. We found methamphetamine, marijuana and paraphernalia,” he said.

He added that there were highly hazardous items present in the meth labs and that there were two small children living in the residence.

In cooperation with child welfare the children were removed from the house and placed with family members.

Both Brian and Jamie Mossier were arrested and booked into Mayes County Jail.

The couple is facing charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia, possession of a surveillance system in commission of a felony and possession of a firearm in commission of a felony. Additionally, Brian Mossier is charged with possession of a stolen credit card and fraudulent use of a credit card. Bond was initially set at $300,000 for Brian Mossier and $250,000 for Jamie Mossier.

Stinnett said Brian Mossier, in addition to having served as Big Cabin police chief for a time also worked for other area departments and served as an investigator for the state medical examiner’s office.

“It’s a sad thing to see people involved in this type of activity and how it impacts their families. It’s very sad and disappointing to see someone who used to carry a badge and hold a position of trust make those choices,” he said.

The agencies involved in the investigation and serving the warrant were Mayes County Sheriff’s Office, Big Cabin Police Department and Rogers County Sheriff’s Office, along with the District Attorney’s Office.
