Sequoyah County Sheriff’s deputies, with the District 27 Drug Task Force, served a narcotics search warrant Tuesday in Muldrow near Flat Rock Road that took a child out of a dangerous environment and took almost 14 grams of methamphetamines off the streets.
Jerry Dean Pratt, 47, of Muldrow was arrested and booked into the Sequoyah County Detention Center on suspicion of possession of suspected methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia with intent to distribute when 13.9 grams of a crystalline substance consistent with methamphetamine, digital scales, plastic bags, syringes and glass pipes were discovered in his home by police, according to a news release from the Sequoyah County Sheriff's Department.
A 1-year-old child was also found at the home during the raid.
The search warrant was part of an ongoing investigation of methamphetamine distribution in Muldrow, according to the news release.
“Mr. Pratt has been a meth supplier for several years,” said Sheriff Larry Lane in the news release. “His criminal history shows six previous narcotics convictions, and one pending. I have received numerous calls from concerned citizens in the Flat Rock Road area about the excessive traffic. Hopefully, this case will keep him off the streets,” added Lane.
Pratt was also booked on suspicion of child endangerment, maintaining a residence where narcotics are sold or kept, use of a police scanner in commission of a felony and use of security cameras in commission of a felony.
