Enid man faces prison on drug charges

ENID, Okla. — A 45-year-old Enid man is facing a possible life sentence after being found last week in possession of methamphetamine and a substance suspected of being black tar heroin.

Ronald Eugene Campbell was arraigned Thursday on a felony charge of possession of CDS subsequent offense and misdemeanor charge of driving with license suspended.

Because of four prior felony convictions, Campbell faces six years to life in prison on the drug charge.

According to an affidavit filed in the case, Garfield Count Sheriff’s Office's Sgt. Logan Niles stopped Campbell’s vehicle at 4:27 p.m. March 14, 2014, in the 1600 block of North 4th for not having a brake light.

Campbell told Niles he did not have a license, and dispatch confirmed Campbell had a suspended license.

During booking, Jail Supervisor John Markus found a plastic bag in Campbell’s shoe Niles recognized as black tar heroin, according to the affidavit. Niles checked the seat of his patrol vehicle and found a second bag containing a substance that tested positive for methamphetamine.

Niles notes in the affidavit he checked his vehicle’s seats prior to his shift for contraband and found none. He also notes Campbell was the first person to be transported in his vehicle that day.

There was 4 grams of methamphetamine and 5.5 grams of what is thought to be heroin found. Both were sent to Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation for further testing.

Campbell is being held in lieu of $50,000 bond and was ordered to return to court April 21 for a bond appearance.
