EUCHA, Okla. - Three people have been arrested after officers discovered items used to “cook” methamphetamines in their home last Wednesday.
Arrested were Jaxon Dewayne Brewer, 42, Misty Dawn Ulrich, 31, and Robert Alvin Welch, 40, after a tip led law enforcement to the Brewer residence in Eucha. During a search of the property, officers discovered items used to manufacture the drug in the bedroom of the home.
Formal felony charges of manufacturing a controlled substance, maintaining a place for keeping/selling controlled substance and child endangerment have been filed on Monday against Brewer and Ulrich. Welch has been charged with felony charges of manufacturing of precursor substance and destroying evidence.
According to the probable cause affidavit signed by Delaware County Sheriff's Captain Ron Teel, he and Sargent Mark Berry searched the premises and cleared the home when Deputy Michael Lanning reported he detected an order from outside the bedroom window associated with a methamphetamine laboratory.
Brewer and Ulrich were cleared from the residence along with 3 children, ages 2, 4 and 6 years of age.
Welch was told the leave the room and the residence. He grabbed a plastic bottle that contained the items that were in the process of “cooking” and took it outside with him because he said that he had to “gas it off”.
According to the report, Welch lit a cigarette lighter and tried to burn the bottle. When it ignited, he dropped it and the fire burned out. The local fire department was called as a precautionary measure.
Welch admitted to cooking about once a week for the past 10 weeks.
Ulrich said she knew Welch has cooked before and said that he has cooked at her residence. Ulrich is currently on probation for omitting to provide for a minor child.
Brewer admitted to helping Welch cook at his residence. Brewer is currently on probation for omitting to provide for a minor child.
Welch had outstanding arrest warrants in Delaware County for leaving the scene of an accident, driving under suspension on two separate counts.
The trio remains incarcerated in the Delaware County Jail. No bond has been set on the new charges. They will appear in district court Wednesday morning at 9:30 a.m.
