McAlester woman pleads in meth bust

McALESTER — A McAlester woman recently pleaded guilty in a methamphetamine bust from earlier in the year.

Hayley Lucille Floyd, 20, was originally charged in September with maintaining a place for keeping /selling controlled substances, possession of a controlled dangerous substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. That case was dismissed and on Nov. 28 a misdemeanor case was filed against Floyd charging her with unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. On the day the misdemeanor charge was filed, Floyd pleaded guilty.

She was fined $330 and sentencing was deferred for one year.

Floyd was originally charged along side six co-defendants in the case which accused some of running a methamphetamine lab.

According to court records, local authorities executed a search warrant Sept. 7 in a home on East Taylor Avenue in McAlester. After securing the residence, and detaining the occupants, officers searched the home and allegedly found numerous items associated with the manufacturing of methamphetamine, according to a police affidavit.

Those who were charged along with Floyd are:

• Angela Pree Eldridge, 36, of McAlester;

• Melissa Mae Rodriguez, 33, McAlester;

• Jeremy Paul Eldridge, 31, McAlester;

• Allen Ray Jewell, 35, Okmulgee;

• James M. Evans, 36, McAlester; and

• Timothy Wayne Jewell, 39, McAlester.

All seven were charged with multiple drug related felonies and misdemeanors.

Angela Eldridge, Rodriguez, Jeremy Eldridge, Allen Jewell and Evans were charged with manufacturing a controlled dangerous substance, maintaining a place for keeping /selling controlled substances and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. Additionally, Angela Eldridge was charged with knowingly possessing a drug product containing pseudoephedrine with intent to manufacture methamphetamine.

Timothy Jewell was charged with maintaining a place for keeping /selling controlled substances, possession of a controlled dangerous substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. He pleaded guilty Oct. 23 in Pittsburg County District Court to misdemeanor charges of possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

After pleaded guilty to the reduced charges, Timothy Jewell was fined $910 and sentencing was deferred for one year.

The remaining five defendants in the case are all due back in court Jan. 28 to face charges.
