A Henryetta woman and an Okmulgee man were arrested Monday after several grams of methamphetamine were found during a traffic stop, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
Marie Doughty, 31, and David Stone, 29, were booked into the Tulsa Jail on trafficking methamphetamine complaints, jail records show.
Stone was also arrested on complaints of driving under the influence, failure to keep in proper lane and possession of a controlled dangerous substance.
An OHP trooper observed a blue Ford Focus traveling in the southbound lane of U.S. 75 at 51st Street about 11:51 p.m. Sunday, according to an arrest report.
The vehicle was finally stopped near 181st Street, and the trooper noticed a strong odor of marijuana on Stone's breath and clothing, the report said.
The trooper noted that Stone had bloodshot eyes, marijuana debris on his tongue, and was breathing and sweating heavily.
The trooper also wrote in the report Stone was making unusual small talk and stuttering.
During a search of Doughty's purse, two large sandwich bags containing crystal methamphetamine estimated to weigh more than 20 grams were found, the report said.
Stone said he was aware the drugs were in his car but thought the trooper "was working with a drug dealer to set him up."
He also allegedly told the trooper that Doughty "was tight with a dealer but would never give a name fearing that he would be taken out."
Stone remains in custody of the Tulsa Jail $35,100. Doughty has been released.
