A Salina woman could face drug charges after drug task for officers discovered what field tested positive for methamphetamines, syringes and other paraphernalia in her purse.
According to the probably cause signed by Delaware County Sheriff's Captain Ron Teel, he was on duty Aug. 20 when he saw a female, later identified as Barbara Jo Shocklee, 31, with a vehicle in the Kenwood area. He noticed fresh “track” marks on both arms and asked for consent to search her purse. A brown pouch containing a syringe was inside along with several cut straws with powder like substance, that later field tested positive for methamphetamine, as well as bottle caps and cotton.
Shocklee admitted to the officer that she shoots methamphetamine. During a search on the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs pseudoephedrine list, it showed that Shocklee had purchased pseudoephedrine 3 times recently, twice in Mayes County and once in Delaware County.
When asked about the purchases, she said each time someone approached her and asked her to buy a box of pseudoephedrine, which she did and sold the pills to the person for $50 a box. She also told Captain Teel that she said she supposed it was being used for cooking methamphetamines.
She could face charges of possession of a controlled substance, possessing of drug paraphernalia and distribution of any product containing pseudoephedrine knowing the purchaser will use it to manufacture methamphetamine or another controlled substance.
Formal charges and an arrest warrant are pending on further investigation.
