Edmond cops find 95 grams of pot in railroad drain

EDMOND — Two Edmond men face drug complaints after officers found about 95 grams of marijuana at a railroad tracks draining culvert, according to an incident report.

At about 3 p.m. on Nov. 10, Police Officer Aaron London was responding to another call in the area of Edwards Street and the railroad tracks when he heard two voices coming from the culvert that ran underneath the tracks, according to an incident report filed by London.

London requested for additional officers and approached the west side of the culvert; he peeked around the corner and could see two males sitting inside, the report stated. He began walking toward them and one of the males yelled “Run,” it stated.

One male ran about 10 yards and fell into a creek while the other ran south along the tracks, the report stated. London detained the male who had fallen while other officers pursued the second male, the report stated.

London asked the male why he ran and he purportedly said “Because we’re in a lot of trouble,” the report stated. Under questioning, the male allegedly said he and the other male were in the culvert with “a lot of weed,” which he claimed belonged to the other male, the report stated.

From items seized inside the culvert officers found four bags containing what London knew to be marijuana, two each weighing 29 grams, a third weighing 29.5 grams, a fourth weighing about 6 grams, the police report stated. An orange piece of paper that contained what appeared to be meth was sent to the OSBI for testing, according to the report. Officers also examined a cell phone for relevant text messages, seized $227 in cash and digital scales, according to the narrative.

Officers said both males denied the marijuana belonged to them, but they had knowledge of it, the report stated.

It was located within 2,000 feet of Russell Dougherty Elementary School, 19 N. Boulevard, and a public park and a public recreation area with walking trails, the report stated.

London stated that both Taylor Gene Hooley, 18, of Edmond, and Anthony Lloyd Bass, 19, of Edmond, were arrested on complaints of possession with intent within 2,000 feet of a public school and public park, possession of drug paraphernalia, obstructing an officer, distribution of a controlled dangerous substance without a tax stamp and conspiracy to commit a felony.

Hooley also faces an additional complaints including bringing controlled dangerous substances into a jail facility for the meth allegedly found when he was being booked, the report stated. A jailer found the drug in a sock when doing a routine search of his belongings, according to supplemental reporting from the Police Department.

On Nov. 13, an affidavit of probable cause in relation to Hooley was filed in Oklahoma County District Court, according to court records. Attorney information and future court dates were not available. Paperwork had not yet been filed in relation to Bass.

As of Thursday, the suspects had not yet been booked into the county jail. | 341-2121, ext. 108

  • Preparing for a fall home garden

    Gardening can be a year-around activity for those that have an appreciation for fresh and nutritious vegetables. Some of the best vegetables in Oklahoma are produced and harvested during the cooler weather of fall. Successful fall gardens, however, require some work in the summer growing season. Factors to be considered are location, soil preparation, crops to be grown and how/when to plant.  
    The major consideration for garden placement is sunlight. All vegetables require some sunlight; the most popular vegetables require full sun. “Full” sun means at least 8 hours of intense, direct exposure.
