Five arrested in Chouteau drug sting

PRYOR, OK — Assistant Chief Michael Reese of the Chouteau Police Department jumped on a tip from a concerned citizen.

The caller was worried about possible drug activity at 223 North First St, Reese said. Reese gathered intel and ultimately served a search warrant on the residence Thursday.

Mayes County Sheriff's Office and Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, along with Chouteau Police Chief Lynn Hershberger and Officers Anna Cox and Travis Cox served the warrant.

Stacy Wulff, Crystal Reeder, Jacie Mitschelen, Gabriel Carson and Timothy Mullens were at the location when the warrant was served.

“Of the three males and two females, a total of four individuals lived in the residence,” said Reese.

“Inside we found four shake-and-bake labs along with actual product, methamphetamine,” said Reese. “In addition, we found glass pipes, baggies, scales, syringes, straws. Really any kind of paraphernalia you can imagine.”

Reese said the department is still sorting through the evidence, gathering information and testing the residue on the paraphernalia.

The amount of drug and paraphernalia leads officers to believe the five were cooking and distributing methamphetamine locally.

All five were interrogated and placed into custody of the Mayes County Jail.

The defendants appeared in Mayes County District Court Friday afternoon where the judge found probable cause to detain them. Potential charges, the judge said, include endeavoring to manufacture, possession with intent to distribute and possession of paraphernalia. Their cases were all continued to Tuesday where they will receive formal charges.

Bond on each case was set at $100,000. Stacy Wulff had an additional failure to pay charge resulting in an additional $10,000 bond.
