LG residents sell meth to cops - twice

PRYOR, OK — Selling methamphetamine to cops is bad. Four Mayes County residents did it twice.   

After making two controlled purchases of methamphetamine, Mayes County Sheriff’s Investigator Jason Treat, along with Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics agents and Locust Grove Police, executed a search warrant on a residence in Locust Grove.     

The residence, near Locust Grove High School, was home to Melanie Williams, Gregory Mellowbug, Gina Mellowbug and Bryan Phillips. The search, combined with the amount purchased, yielded officers 10 grams of methamphetamine, valued at over $1,000, according to Treat, who is also an OBN agent. The group was selling methamphetamine out of the house. The residence was also home to a minor, 9 years old, who is not the biological child of any of the adults living there, according to Treat.     

Gregory Mellowbug and Williams are each charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance within 2,000 feet of a school and possession of paraphernalia, according to Treat. Williams has an additional felony count of possession of a firearm after former felony conviction.

Gina Mellowbug is charged with two counts of conspiracy of delivery of controlled dangerous substance, unlawful use of a communication device, child neglect, possession of a controlled dangerous substance within 2,000 feet of a school and possession of a firearm after former felony conviction.

Phillips is also charged with two felony counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled dangerous substance as well as possession with intent to distribute within 2,000 feet of a school and unlawful use of a communication device.     

The two women are in a relationship having met while they were cellmates in prison. The two were released less than six months before this arrest. Gina Mellowbug has multiple prior felony convictions; in Mayes County she has been charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, aggravated assault and battery, petit larceny and feloniously pointing a firearm. Williams has formerly been charged with three counts of concealing stolen property, five counts of forgery and two counts of obstructing an officer.
