VERDIGRIS —

Rogers County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested a Verdigris man on a drug activity complaint Friday night at Terra Nitrogen in Verdigris.
Deputies identified the man as 27-year-old crane operator Camron Cook.
According to the arrest report, one of the site’s safety officers went to use the restroom and observed Cook bent over the toilet. The report stated that Cook walked out of the restroom and the safety officer went in. The safety officer observed a white powdery substance on the closed lid of the toilet.
The safety officer notifed an off-duty deputy who was working security at the time. A field test was performed on the substance and it tested positive for methamphetamine, according to the report. When asked about the drugs, Cook denied using meth; however, he said he did take an oxycodone, which he was not previously prescribed.
He told deputies he had two more pills in his lunch box. Cook was arrested for possession of a narcotic controlled substance.
Deputies were later notified that Cook’s backpack was located in the crane he was operating that evening. Inside, one of the deputies found a white styrofoam cup with a syringe and a white bottle.
According to the report, Camron said they were his, but they were not used for meth, but to clean urine for needed drug tests.
