Court Notes: Myers, Renfro

PRYOR, OK — Randall Myers, Ketchum, appeared in Mayes County District Court Tuesday on felony charges. Myers is charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance, marijuana, and possession of a firearm while in commission of a felony all after former felony convictions. Information filed in the case says on Oct. 21, he had in his possession a loaded Raven .25 caliber semi-automatic pistol. Judge Rebecca Gore who presided

over the arraignments informed Myers that possession of marijuana as listed in his case can carry from two to ten years in jail. Myers’ case was continued to the preliminary hearing sounding docket Nov. 21. Bond was set at $15,000 and Myers will be remanded to the custody of the Mayes County Jail until bond

is posted. Myers’ prior felony was filed in Craig County. The charge consists of one count of possession of a controlled dangerous substance (marijuana) and possession of paraphernalia for which he was sentenced to one year in the county jail.

Charges were filed Thursday against Rocky Renfro, Tahlequah, for possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute and possession of paraphernalia. Renfro was pulled over for a traffic infraction by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol when the marijuana and paraphernalia were found.

Renfro made his initial court appearance Thursday before Judge  Gore. Representing the state of Oklahoma, Assistant District Attorney Glenn Dresback said they were requesting a pretty high bond. Dresback sighted Renfro’s criminal record as the cause.  

In February Renfro was charged with a misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana in Payne County. Later, in June he received a misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia charge.

In August, in Delaware County, Renfro was charged with possession of a controlled drug (methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance (marijuana) and possession of paraphernalia. Later that same month, in Cherokee County he was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance by the Tahlequah Police Department.

He was charged with additional possession of controlled dangerous substance (marijuana) and paraphernalia in September in Creek County.

“Given he has been arrested in nearly every county around here, and has failed to appear in court,  the state finds there is not satisfactory way to ensure he will appear but to request a $250,000 bond,” said Dresback.

The court complied and Renfro was remanded to the custody of the Mayes County Jail until bond is posted. His case was continued to the preliminary hearing sounding docket Nov. 21.
