A Texas County duo was arrested on drug charges last Friday, July 26th, in Goodwell, Okla.
Gordon Myers, 38, of Goodwell and Tera Lynn Michael, 33, of Guymon were booked into Texas County jail after police found marijuana plants during a search, Texas County Sheriff's Department said in a press release. About 11:51 a.m., Texas County Sheriff's Department and Goodwell Police Department executed a search warrant for the crimes of unlawful cultivation and possession of a controlled dangerous substance at 602 W. Elm St. in Goodwell.
Along with Myers and Michael, a four-year-old boy was in the residence during the search. Police said a marijuana grow operation was located in a large walk-in closet in the northwest bedroom of the residence.
Officers found two marijuana plants that were over three feet growing in two planter pots and located several items that would aid in the cultivation of the plants. Police also found two small plastic baggies containing marijuana, a pack of cigarette rolling papers, a set of digital scale, marijuana pipes, a marijuana grinder, a "how to grow marijuana notebook" and a utility bill addressed to Gordon Meyers at 602 W. Elm St. in Goodwell.
Two harvested plants were found hanging from the ceiling on a plastic clothes hanger in the bedroom. Police also located three firearms. One of the firearms was loaded.
The Department of Human Services for the State of Oklahoma was contacted in reference to the boy. A case worker with the department arrived on scene and took temporary custody of the child. The child was later released to his mother.
Bond was set at $10,000 each.
