Thirty prescriptions with different names and enough promethazine and codeine for 300 doses were seized in a three-person drug arrest.
Rogers County Sheriff's Office says three people, all from Illinois, were arrested on the felony charges: Abdullah Ghazzali, 31, Milton McKenzie, 30, and Celia Rios, 25.
Records show it all started with a traffic stop for failure to maintain lane on I-44 at the Will Rogers Turnpike in Catoosa, in Rogers County.
Approaching the vehicle, Deputy Hamilton notes recognizing an odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.
The deputy's report notes "signs of nervousness and deceptive body language" when speaking to McKenzie, the driver, but added that the stories given by the three of where they were headed didn't match up.
He reported that the two males in the vehicle did not know each other's names.
Lt. Walker confronted Ghazzali on the odor of marijuana, Hamilton reports, and Ghazzali ultimately "produced a small baggy of marijuana he had hidden in his underwear."
A K9 officer alerted to the odor of narcotics in the vehicle shortly thereafter.
"I located 30 prescription scripts in the glovebox with names of individuals not present. There were 15 scripts for Amoxicillin and 15 scripts for Promethazine with codeine," Hamilton reports. "Lt. Walker located three Vitamin Water brand bottles that were in a bag in the third row seat with their snacks. The bottles contained a purple fluid with a viscosity inconsistent with water."
The deputy reported that the bottles contained a fluid believed to contain Promethazine with Codeine.
"There were approximately 50 fluid ounces of Promethazine with Codeine, and the scripts stated the dosage was one teaspoon. This equates to approximately 300 dosage units of Promethazine with Codeine. Codeine is a schedule two controlled dangerous substance in the State of Oklahoma," Hamilton reported. "All three individuals were placed under arrest…they were each charged with one count of possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute and 15 counts of attempt to obtain a controlled dangerous substance by fraud."
Bond was set at $50,000 each.
