Anadarko man held on $500,000 bond for drug charge
A 50-year-old Anadarko man with a lengthy criminal record for drugs was arrested with over 20 grams of methamphetamine and is looking at life in prison.
Keith Deshawn Miller made his initial appearance Tuesday in Caddo County District Court where he was charged with a felony count of trafficking in illegal drugs after former conviction of multiple felonies, as well as misdemeanor counts of possession of controlled dangerous substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and transporting an opened container of alcohol, records indicate. The trafficking case is punishable by between 20 years to life in prison.
Miller was arrested Monday afternoon following a traffic stop by Anadarko police.
According to the probable cause affidavit, Miller was stopped in a Hyundai Elantra in the roadway south of the 4th Street and West Alabama Street intersection and tried to turn right but drove over the curb and through a front yard. The officer caught up with him after he pulled into the driveway of 308 West Alabama where he was walking towards the front door. He came back to the car and provided his license and registration to the officer.
Officer Dustan Chandler said he checked Miller for warrants and discovered his numerous narcotic charges and called for a K9 officer to come to the scene.
While issuing Miller a warning, the K9 officer arrived. When asked if he had anything the dog would alert on, he admitted to having some marijuana in a bag in the front seat, according to the affidavit. The dog conducted a sniff and alerted to the driver’s side door.
