Meth making charges dismissed for two McAlester men

McALESTER — Charges of manufacturing methamphetamine were dismissed recently for two McAlester men.

Mark Wayne Crawley, 47, and Michael Tyler Lovelace, 20, were charged April 22 in Pittsburg County District Court with manufacturing a controlled dangerous substance (methamphetamine) and possession of a controlled dangerous substance within 1,000 feet of public housing. They were also charged with misdemeanor unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

On May 31, both men pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor charge. Crawley pleaded guilty to the second felony count and Lovelace pleaded guilty to an amended charge of possession of a controlled dangerous substance. The methamphetamine making charge was dismissed for both men.

According to court records, local authorities executed a search warrant April 18 in a unit in a Park Avenue apartment building. During the search, police allegedly found numerous items associated with making methamphetamine.

After pleading guilty, Crawley was fined $1,065 and both Crawley and Lovelace received six-year suspended sentences.
