3 arrested following meth bust

CLAREMORE — The Rogers County Sheriff’s office have arrested three people after finding methamphetamine in a Claremore home.

Rogers County Deputy Quint Tucker served a search warrant Thursday at a home near Mony Trail in Claremore, in search of ICE (crystal methamphetamine),   according to Deputy Jerry Smittle.
“Once inside the residence, Deputy Tucker discovered the presence of crystal meth, (drug) paraphernalia, and cash in the home,” Smittle said.
“During the search, Deputy Tucker also found an 18-month old child, a resident of the home, playing in the same room where the meth was discovered.”
Occupants of the home — Timothy Lane Lunsford, 32, Rachel Steele, 22 and Michael Anthony Tran, 27 — were taken into custody and subsequently arrested and placed in Rogers County Jail. 
Steele faces charges of trafficking illegal drugs, child endangerment and possession of paraphernalia. She was allegedly using a mailbox to leave drugs for customers, according to Smittle.
Tran faces charges of distribution of a controlled substance and possession of paraphernalia, and Lunsford faces charges of driving with a suspended license and possession of paraphernalia.
The 18-month-old was placed in the custody of its grandparents.
