PRYOR, OK — Donna Stockton and Charles Humbyrd were arrested on methamphetamine charges following a traffic stop April 8.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper Dustin Thornton stopped a vehicle going 80 miles per hour, 10 mph over the posted limit.

The driver identified himself as Humbyrd and and said he was taking Stockton and another passenger to Tahlequah.

“During the conversation, Thornton observed him to be very nervous. Humbyrd's hands were visibly shaking and he did not make eye contact,” according to probable cause affidavit filed in the case.

Thornton allegedly asked Humbyrd about any current or past drug use.

“Humbyrd stated he had used methamphetamine, marijuana and cocaine in the past,  but methamphetamine was the most recent,” according to the affidavit. “The officer asked Humbyrd if he had any marijuana in the vehicle or on his person, he paused and then said no.”

When asked if Thornton could search his vehicle, Humbyred allegedly said yes.

“Thornton located several empty clear plastic baggies between the passenger seat and the passenger door. Stockton told Thornton she had an empty pill bottle in the vehicle and retrieved one from the passenger side floor board with the name Charles Powell on it,” according to the affidavit.

The pill bottle allegedly contained folded paper, which Stockton said was not hers, but retrieved another empty pill bottle from her purse. The folded papers, according to the affidavit, were coffee filters that contained a powdery white substance which field tests confirmed as methamphetamine.

The officer found three used syringes in an envelope with some other papers, wedged between the center console and the passenger seat.

Stockton and Humbyrd were booked into the Mayes County Jail Tuesday.

Humbyrd, 41, Catoosa, is charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance and possession of paraphernalia. Stockton, 43, Wagoner, was charged with the same. Bond was set at $50,000 each.

Andrea Gregoire and Kenneth Hazen, both of Pryor, were charged with identical offenses. Court records allege they each had controlled dangerous substances, methamphetamine and marijuana, in their possession. They were charged with possession of syringes as well. Gregoire, 27, and Hazen, 32, both had bonds set at $50,000.
