PRYOR, OK — Chouteau Police Officer Thomas Fisher said it’s “all in a day’s work.”

His work resulted in four drug arrests Saturday night.

The arrests each began as traffic stops.

The first, Fisher said, was a driver from Minnesota who was pulled over for “obscured view of a registration plate.” The Minnesota man had 9.5 grams of hydroponic marijuana in his possession, according to Fisher.

Hydroponic marijuana is high quality and grown in a water solution.

“I stopped another car later on for a defective tail light and seized 2 grams of hydro marijuana and seized $300 in cash and filed for forfeiture on the vehicle. I arrested all three out of that car. One passenger had warrants out of Craig County, too,” said Fisher, adding that two of the individuals were from Vinita and the other was from Pryor.

All four suspects were arrested on possession charges and taken to Locust Grove Jail.

“Chouteau PD wants to make sure that people understand we do not tolerate drug activity,” said Fisher.
