Last week, deputies arrested Randy Baldridge after a witness accused him of picking up runaway boys and giving them drugs, sometimes in exchange for sexual favors.

Another witness told police Baldridge gave him methamphetamine and he later woke up in a field naked.

When the Rogers County THUG task force took Baldridge into custody they say he had a 16-year-old runaway from Tulsa with him.

Deputies say they found syringes in the boy's backpack that tested positive for containing methamphetamine.
