Former Mayes County Deputy Sheriff surrenders to authorities for stealing drug evidence

Former Mayes County Deputy Sheriff surrenders to authorities for stealing drug evidence (KTUL)

Former Mayes County Deputy Sheriff Brett Mull surrendered to the Mayes County Sheriff’s Office on Monday after a complaint was filed alleging he took drug evidence during investigations.

A criminal complaint was filed in U.S. District Court alleging he misused his position to obtain methamphetamine that had been collected as evidence.

Mull was charged with tampering or obstruction of an official investigation.

According to the complaint, investigators discovered Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation evidence envelopes during a search of his house July 3. The envelopes appeared to have previously contained methamphetamine. The complaint alleges that Mull admitted to officers that he had removed the evidence from the Criminal Investigations Unit, which he supervised, for his own personal use.

“This case demonstrates the destructive lure of methamphetamine,” said U.S. Attorney Trent Shores. “More importantly, Mr. Mull has allegedly violated the public’s trust and abused his position as a deputy sheriff. Those serving in law enforcement must maintain a justice system that fosters trust among the people of this nation who count on these men and women. The U.S. Attorney’s Office will seek to hold Mr. Mull accountable in a court of law.”

The criminal complaint is currently pending at the U.S. District Court in Tulsa.
