A Tulsa man was arraigned Monday on allegations of importing ecstasy from a German supplier in December.
Jeremy Daniel Singer, 36, was arraigned on charges of possession of ecstasy and marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of oxycodone without a valid prescription, importing ecstasy and smuggling goods into the U.S., according to court records.
A grand jury indicted Singer in March on the allegations stemming from a December arrest, and he had indicated to federal authorities that he would surrender on March 12. Federal agents state in a search warrant affidavit that Singer’s wife and lawyer did not know his whereabouts.
The several-month delay in Singer’s arraignment came on the heels of a case in Johnson County, Wyoming, where Singer allegedly fled from authorities and stole a bulldozer.
Johnson County, Wyoming, sheriff’s deputies arrested Singer in April following a traffic stop and overnight pursuit. Singer allegedly fled from deputies on Interstate 90, going off-road and abandoning his vehicle, the Casper Star Tribune reports. Singer allegedly stole a John Deere bulldozer from a methane field. A worker in the area spotted Singer driving the bulldozer, according to a search warrant affidavit. Deputies located Singer that April night after he was detained by local ranchers.
Wyoming authorities reportedly found 34 tablets of oxycontin, 77 grams of marijuana, three packs of marijuana edibles and paraphernalia in Singer’s abandoned vehicle, according to the affidavit.
It is not clear if Singer was charged in Wyoming. Singer was extradited to Oklahoma and booked into Tulsa County jail on June 4, a day before the federal indictments were unsealed. Singer is being held without bond.
In December in Tulsa, authorities arrested Singer on allegations he ordered pounds of marijuana and ecstasy and sold the drugs locally. Singer posted a $50,000 bond after that arrest. U.S. Postal Inspection Service agents intercepted a package containing the alleged narcotics and delivered it to Singer’s address, according to a previous story. Singer allegedly ordered the substance from Germany and had it delivered to his home address, located in the 2700 block of East Third Street, using a pseudonym.
Singer was charged in state court with one count of trafficking in illegal drugs. A bench warrant was issued for him after he failed to appear for the March 27 hearing. His next court appearances in state and federal courts were not immediately available.
