GLENPOOL - Police uncovered a marijuana-growing operation in a house near a child-care center Monday.
Officers went to a home in the 14100 block of South Hickory Place to serve a search warrant about 8 a.m., documents show. Inside, they saw a bag that contained 3.5 grams of marijuana and found Rayshawn Wandre "Ray-Ray" Crawford, along with a woman and an infant, records show.
The arresting officer wrote that the search warrant was granted after a confidential informant bought marijuana from Crawford, 19. The informant also said Crawford had sold marijuana to juveniles.
The infant's bedroom and closet contained "seven small starter plant bowls with potting soil and what appeared to be marijuana seeds," various plant nutrient supplements, grow lights, a nutrients almanac and a chart "that gave the basics of how to conduct a hydroponics grow," the arresting officer wrote.
Police also reported that they found 29 hydrocodone pills and a video of Crawford growing marijuana plants.
The woman said she thought Crawford was growing flowers and tomato plants, the report states.
Crawford was arrested on complaints of cultivating marijuana in the presence of a minor, possession of marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled drug. He is in the Tulsa Jail with bail set at $8,750.
The house is less than 500 feet from the Native American Coalition of Tulsa's Head Start facility.
