DRUG BUST: One week later

Arrests lead to record filings in Rogers County court system

CLAREMORE — One week after the “largest drug bust in the state,” roughly half of those arrested may no longer be in Rogers County Jail, but that doesn’t mean their troubles with the law are over.

“Even though it’s my understanding that about 50 percent of the people we picked up in the (Jan. 13) citywide drug bust have bonded out, they’re hardly off the hook,” said Claremore Police Lt. Chuck Goad. “From what I saw, bonds were set between $5,000 up to $15,000 and it’s not uncommon for people to post bond while they’re awaiting trial. They can either wait out their trial in jail or post bond and do the same from their residence.”

Claremore Police, Rogers County Sheriff’s officers, and multiple local, state and federal agencies arrested more than 60 local residents earlier this month in an operation five months in the making.

By day’s end, 64 persons were arrested on drug-related charges, some of which have begun to be filed in Rogers County District Court.

“The next step for these people — both the ones who are still incarcerated in jail and those who were released on bond will be the preliminary hearing, at which the prosecution presents facts and evidence against the suspect, and the defense can present their arguments,” Lt. Goad said. “If the judge feels there’s enough information to hold the person over for trial, which in all of these cases, we’re confident will happen as this (drug bust) was the result of months of evidence gathering and undercover work on our part.”

When arrested, each suspect was picked up on warrants issued by the district attorney, but formal charges are filed later.

Thus far, formal charges filed against those arrested in the Thursday, Jan. 13 drug bust are as follows:

• Kimberly Ann Albertson, 32, distribution of controlled substance (F) *
