Muldrow man pleads not guilty to drug charges
Tuesday, May 17, 2022 - A Muldrow man pleaded not guilty May 11 to a felony charge of unlawful possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute, court records show.
Homer Jay Teague, 59, faces up to 10 years in the Department of Corrections if he is convicted in the case. He was also charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance and the unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors.
According to a probable cause affidavit, a state search warrant was executed Oct. 19, 2021, at Teague’s residence.
When no one answered their knock, Sequoyah County sheriff’s deputies made entry into the home, where they encountered a woman lying on a living room couch. Teague was found in the home’s hallway.
In the master bedroom, deputies found another woman and two juvenile females. Everyone was detained and authorities began searching the home.
A plastic bag with a white, crystalline substance was found inside one of Teague’s pants pockets. The substance field-tested positive for methamphetamine. More meth, along with marijuana and smoking devices, was reportedly discovered elsewhere in the home.
