Search warrant leads to arrest and confiscation of drugs and weapons

Thursday, February 15, 2024 - On Wednesday, February 14, just after daylight, authorities served a narcotics search warrant that ended with one arrest and the confiscation of drugs, weapons, and cash.

Sequoyah County Sheriff's deputies and investigators, Sallisaw Police Department investigator, and District 27 DTF agents worked together to serve the warrant and search the rural residence in the Gum Springs community, north of Gore.

According to Sheriff Larry Lane, officers recovered over a pound of methamphetamine, a large amount of marijuana, fentanyl, loaded firearms, and over $4000 cash.

When officers arrived, they had to negotiate through a maze of about a dozen pit bulls to get to the residence. Although one deputy received a minor dog bite to his leg, none of the dogs had to be shot, Sheriff Lane said.

Arrested from the residence was Tracy Radick, 38, of Gore. Radick is facing charges of trafficking methamphetamines, possession of controlled dangerous substance (marijuana) with intent to distribute, felon in possession of firearm, possession of firearm in commission of a felony, possession of controlled dangerous substance (fentanyl), acquiring proceeds from criminal activity, three counts of felony charge after former conviction of a felony.

"This was a very remote location, near the Muskogee county line. She had several large aggressive pit bulls, chained up all over the property, so the deputies had to really watch where they walked," Sheriff Lane said. "The officers did a great job on this investigation. Another large drug supplier is in jail."
