An Edmond man is charged in McClain County District Court with trafficking in illegal drugs, unlawful possession of a counterfeit controlled drug with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony.
Those charges were filed after a former felony conviction.
Craig C. Jefferson, 35, is also charged with resisting an officer, a misdemeanor.
He is free after posting $65,000 bond.
According to an affidavit, Jefferson was arrested May 11 by an investigator for the district attorney’s office.
The investigator paced the Ford F-150 pickup driven by Jefferson at 77 mph on I-44 near the 108 mile marker.
When the officer gave Jefferson a verbal warning for speeding, Jefferson shook his hand. It was then he detected the odor of fresh raw marijuana coming from the vehicle.
When questioned, Jefferson said he had applied for a medical marijuana card, but hadn’t received it.
Jefferson allegedly became upset when the officer said he was going to search the pickup and tried to get back into the vehicle. He admitted there were illegal items in the pickup, according to the affidavit.
Jefferson was found to have a baggie of marijuana in a front pants pocket. The investigator also recovered a stolen Glock 22 handgun with a loaded 30-round magazine in his backpack, a plastic sack containing two pounds of compressed marijuana and 28 grams of crack cocaine in baggies.
