Traffic stop nets meth and money

A traffic stop near Chickasha and Loman Street in Sulphur led to the discovery over 1.5 pounds of a substance that field tested positive for methamphetamine and the seizure of approximately $37,000 in United States currency on March 9.
Deputy Ben Flowers was on patrol when he noticed a vehicle violate a rule of the road statute. While Deputy Flowers was initiating a traffic stop, he noticed a purse in the roadway that was thrown from the vehicle near the Sulphur Elementary School. Deputy Flowers stopped and got the purse from the roadway. He caught up to the vehicle for the traffic stop.
After the other officers arrived on scene Deputy Flowers noticed the purse that was thrown from the vehicle contained approximately 1.5 pounds of a substance thought to be methamphetamine and approximately $2,000. in cash. After the discovery of the methamphetamine all three of the vehicles occupants were detained.
The driver of the vehicle was identified as Sara Dawn Dixon, the front seat passenger was identified as Terren James Lowe and the back seat passenger was identified as Cameron Nyberg. During the traffic stop, an additional 3 ounces of a substance thought to methamphetamine was located on Nyberg. All three subjects were transported to the Murray County Jail and interviews were conducted.
During this investigation, lawmen learned that Dixon, said she was one of the biggest methamphetamine dealers in the Ada area. Lawmen also learned Dixon possibly sold as much as 15 pounds of methamphetamine a week in the area of Ada and surrounding communities.
The Murray County Sheriff’s Office and the agents with the OBNDD secured a search warrant for a bank in Ada. Once the search warrant was executed by Deputy Flowers and an agent with the OBNDD at the bank lawmen recovered approximately $35,500. from the institution that belonged to Dixon. Lawmen believe this money is proceeds derived from or intended to be used for illegal drug activity. Additionally, lawmen learned the three subjects were traveling to Sulphur in an attempt to sell methamphetamine to a local drug dealer. The intended buyer has been arrested in the past by the Murray County Sheriff’s Office for distribution of methamphetamine, and he will get to see deputies in the near future. All three subjects have been charged in the District Court of Murray County for aggravated trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of drug proceeds derived from or intended to be used for illegal drug activity, conspiracy to commit a felony and pattern of criminal offenses in two or more counties.
This is not the first time the Sheriff’s office has had an incident that had connections to Dixon. In the past, a pursuit that involved numerous agencies that ended when a Johnston County Deputy shot the driver of the vehicle that ended a very dangerous pursuit. The vehicle was owned by Dixon and lawmen believe the vehicle was stolen from her because of the large amount of drug money located inside the vehicle.
The Murray County Sheriff’s Office believes Dixon is a major methamphetamine dealer in this area from her own admissions and evidence. There is no doubt, if Dixon distributes as much methamphetamine as alleged, she has left a wake of destruction in our local communities. The Sheriff’s Office believes getting her off the streets is a major victory for the community.
In the last year, with the help of the OBNDD the Murray County Sheriff’s Office has seized just under a half million dollars from illegal drug activity in Murray County. The OBNDD and the Murray County Sheriff’s Office will remain proactive departments in the enforcement of illegal narcotics.
During National School Breakfast Week lawmen from the Murray County Sheriff’s Office were invited to the Sulphur Public Schools to serve breakfast and get a chance to visit with the local kids. Deputy Flowers and Deputy Brandon Eddy served at the Sulphur Elementary School and had the opportunity to hear numerous “cop jokes” from the youngsters. Sheriff Darin Rogers, Undersheriff Jay McClure and Deputy Mike Woods served breakfast at the high school. This was a great opportunity to engage in conversations with the youth and to show our support for the kids in our community.
Lawmen had the opportunity to speak with employees Carrie Riley, Dorthy Patrick, High School Principal Clete Cole and Assistant Principal Toby Todd.
The Sheriff’s Office and the local schools have a great working relationship that definitely benefits our kids. The Murray County Sheriff’s Office and the employees of our local school systems know the future of the communities is decided in the quality of our school systems. Murray County is very fortunate to have two great school systems and the staff who educate our kids.
