Ricky Earl Ford, 27, is wanted on a warrant issued July 10 for possession of a CDS with intent to distribute, destruction of evidence, false personation, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of proceeds in violation of UCDSA and possession of a firearm after a previous felony conviction.


The district attorney believes Ford's real name is Benjamin Harrison, but when he was arrested police said he had a California ID with the name Ricky Ford.

"We understand that he also had some convictions out of California," Mark Opgrande with the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office said. "Whether or not he'll try to go to California or not, we're not sure. We do believe he's still around the area so if people know where he is, they can call anonymously."

Court records show that on June 22 Oklahoma City officers were searching Randy Terry, a man wanted in connection to a homicide, at the Sooner Haven Apartments, 1420 NE 36 Street.

When officers knocked on a door at the apartment, a man attempted to flee out the second story back window. He quickly went back into the apartment after seeing officers and began screaming at officers. Police on scene reported hearing the man banging and breaking items in the residence.

Officers then forced entry into the home and reportedly smelled the odor of PCP. As the man, later identified as Ford, walked down the stairs of the home PCP vials allegedly fell from him.

"It was good too that they were able to go to that apartment and shut it down," Opgrande said. "Now we just need to find that individual."

Ford was then taken into custody. Inside the home police allegedly found empty PCP vials, water bottles full of PCP and empty bottles crushed and scattered near a sink, over $200 in cash and a pistol. Police did not find Terry at the residence.

Ford was arrested but later bonded out of jail.


Ford is described as 5-feet, 11-inches tall and weighing around 180 pounds.
