2 arrested in Sperry for illegally growing marijuana
SPERRY, Okla. (KTUL) —
Sperry police arrested a man and woman on Saturday for illegally growing medical marijuana in Sperry.
Officers say they responded to a call of a dog bite around 8:50 p.m. and they knew where the dog lived, so they took it home. When police got to the home, 27-year-old Shane Remington answered the door and said he owned the dog.
The officer said based on his training, he was able to smell a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the house. Remington told police he had just smoked, but the officer said it was stronger than that.
SPD placed Remington into handcuffs and went inside. The officer found 60-year-old Tami Remington and put her into handcuffs as well until he could obtain a search warrant.
Officers received a search warrant soon after their arrival and found seven mature marijuana plants and eight younglings inside two separate indoor greenhouses with ventilation systems. They also found several empty baggies, scales, methamphetamine, cocaine and several other paraphernalia items.
Tami and Shane Remington were booked into the Tulsa County Jail and are both facing multiple charges including possession of a firearm first offense, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of a school or park, cultivation of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
