CPD breaks up year-long meth operation

CHICKASHA —

A traffic stop led to four arrests and the destruction of a possible drug operation that was in business for over a year. 

Chickasha Police Lt. G.G. Music stopped Suzanne Fletcher for an expired tag and found her license was also expired. 

During a search of Fletcher's vehicle, she admitted to having "a bowl in her bra and some drugs in her pants." 

Music said he executed a search in a house at 1023 W. Arkansas Ave. after he stopped Fletcher.

CPD Major Shanon McClain said the connection between the traffic stop and the drug operation was due to the way CPD "gathers intelligence on matters."  

During his search, Music said he found more than 15 grams of methamphetamine and $1400. 

The home's primary resident, Catherine Burnett, agreed she had been selling illegal drugs from insider her home, according to an incident report. 

"…(She) told me she had only been doing so for around a year," Music said. 

Music said Burnett took him to her bedroom where she showed him a blue purse. The purse contained methamphetamine and $1,400. 

"Ms. Burnett told me that was all she had in the house and on several occasions she referred to herself as 'a small player,'" Music said. 

Music located more methamphetamine under a couch in the house's den, according to the report. 

Ronald Burnett was also located inside the residence during the search, and said he knew illegal drugs were being sold from inside his house, and those sales had been ongoing for at least a year. 

"He further told me that he has taken part in the drug trade by accepting money as payment for some of the drugs that have been sold from his house," Music said. 

Carla Bozarth was also detained.
