Pair facing multiple drug charges

Woodward, Okla. — Two Woodward residents are facing multiple drug felony charges after allegedly selling methamphetamine to an informant with the bureau of narcotics

Court records show James Dustin Singhisen and JA Ashley Broke Miller aka JA Brooke Anderson were charged in Woodward County District Court Wednesday with:

• Distribution of controlled dangerous substance - methamphetamine - within 2,000 feet of a school

• Possession of controlled dangerous substance - methamphetamine

• Maintaining a place for keeping/selling controlled dangerous substance

• Unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia (misdemeanor).

Both made court appearances on Wednesday and had bail set at $100,000. Preliminary hearing for both is set for March 3, 2014 at 9:30 a.m.

Affidaviits filed with the charges indicate on Aug. 9 a bureau of narcotics confidential informant allegedly purchased .4 grams of purported meth from Miller at a residence in the 900 block of 21st St. The affidavit states the purported meth field tested positive for the presence of methamphetamine and was sent to the OSBI lab for analysis. The exchange was arranged by telephone conversations between the informant and Singhisen, the affidavit states.

Then, on Aug. 16, the informant allegedly purchased another .4 grams of purported meth from Singhisen at the same residence. Again, according to the affidavit, the field test was positive for the presence of methamphetamine and was set for analysis.

On Aug. 20, a search warrant was served on the residence, which, according to the charges, is located within 2000 feet of the Woodward Christian Academy, which is at 1900 Kansas.

Singhisen and Miller were arrested and during the search, investigators allegedly found several pipes with residue, plastic baggies with white crystal substance and a scale. The white crystal substance field tested positive for the presence of methamphetamine, according to the affidavit, and was sent to the OSBI lab for testing.

Records filed with the charges show that both Miller (Anderson) and Singhisen have previous felony convictions.
