Comments Off on Motorcyclist, Brandon McAdams, 39, of Stillwater, Charged With Possession of Methamphetamine in Yale

(Stillwater, Okla.) — A 39-year-old Stillwater man is facing his third methamphetamine charge in seven months – this time for allegedly possessing the drug and paraphernalia while driving a motorcycle on a suspended license and failing to carry a security verification form in Yale.

After Brandon McAdams was arrested by Yale Police Officer Stephen Lombard on April 12, he was ordered held without bond by District Judge Phillip Corley pending his May 12 sentencing on his two earlier methamphetamine charges, to which he had pleaded guilty in January.

Three months later while McAdams was free on bond in those two earlier cases, at 8:30 p.m. on April 12 the Yale police officer “spotted a motorcycle at a home, which is being watched for drug use and sales,” in the 400 block of W. Charleston, Lombard’s affidavit alleged.

“I later spotted the motorcycle at the local convenience store,” and found that the owner’s driver’s license had expired, the Yale officer wrote in his affidavit.

While waiting for the motorcycle to leave the parking lot, the Yale officer saw a red SUV pull in “and at one point, both drove out of the parking lot to the east of the store and into another parking lot just east of the store, and then back into the Bulldog’s parking lot,” according to the affidavit.

“The bike was parked in the alley and the rider got into the red SUV and left in an unknown direction of travel,” the affidavit said.

“A short time later, the red SUV came back and a male got on the motorcycle and headed west on Chicago (State Highway 51) with the red SUV following,” the affidavit alleged.

When the Yale officer activated his emergency equipment, the motorcycle and SUV both pulled over, the affidavit said.

McAdams said that his driver’s license was suspended, the affidavit alleged.

When the Yale officer asked “why he was hanging around a house in Yale that is known for drugs,” McAdams said he was collecting money from a man, but would not say what the money was for, the affidavit alleged.

McAdams denied that he had drugs, but when Payne County Sheriff’s Deputy Bobby Miller arrived, “McAdams admitted that he had methamphetamine in his jacket pocket,” the affidavit alleged.

“McAdams told Deputy Miller where the drug kit was located,” the affidavit alleged.

An eyeglass case contained three used syringes, one glass bottle with clear liquid for loading syringes, a baggy containing nine pills identified as acetaminophen/hydrocodone, a baggy containing a white crystal substance field-tested as methamphetamine, a straw with a residue field-tested as containing methamphetamine and two Q-tips, the affidavit alleged.

“McAdams told me the crystal substance was methamphetamine, the syringes were used, and that the clear liquid was a methamphetamine solution,” the Yale officer alleged in his affidavit.

“I will be sending the crystal substance and the clear liquid to the OSBI lab for confirmation and total weight,” the Yale officer wrote in his affidavit.

Three months ago, McAdams had pleaded guilty to possessing methamphetamine twice in Payne County, on Sept. 8 and Dec. 19, both in 2016, court records show.

If convicted of all three of his felony methamphetamine possession charges, McAdams could be sentenced to 15 years in prison and fined $15,000 court records show.

If convicted of misdemeanor counts of possessing drug paraphernalia on three occasions, as well as driving on a suspended license and failing to carry a security verification form, McAdams could be jailed for four years plus 30 days and fined $3,750, court records show.
