Traffic stop leads to gun, meth arrest


A traffic stop resulted in the discovery of guns and methamphetamine early in the morning Nov. 18. 

Chickasha Police Officer Joel Hendrix said he saw a vehicle driving west bound in the east bound lane in the 3300 block of W. Old Highway 62. Hendrix said he activated his lights, and as he approached the car he noticed the driver side window was already down. 

Hendrix identified the driver as Aaron Powers. 

"Powers appeared to be very worried about me making contact with him," said Hendrix. 

A rifle was in plain view, according to Hendrix. Powers said there were multiple guns in the vehicle. 

"I located a black 9mm pistol under the passenger seat that contained a fully loaded magazine, but did not have one in the chamber," said Hendrix. "During my investigation I also located an unloaded AR-15 in the back seat and another rifle. I also located a .38 special revolver in the glove box that was unloaded." 

Hendrix said he also located a glass pipe with white residue lying in the weeds on the edge of the road. 

The residue inside of the pipe was later field tested and  tested positive for methamphetamine.

"The location of the pipe compared to the driver side window would be consistent with the driver 'tossing' the pipe out the window," said Hendrix. 

Hendrix learned Powers and his passenger both had previous convictions for drugs. 

Powers said he knew nothing about the pipe and it was never in his vehicle, according to Hendrix. 

"After explaining how I believed he threw the pipe out of the window before I pulled in behind the vehicle, he did not deny it," said Hendrix. "Powers would only tell me he just wants to be good and go home to his son and see his daughter being born." 

Hendrix also located a schedule III Hydrocodone in the car. 

Powers was arrested for possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of paraphernalia and several other charges.
