Two traffic stops in Okmulgee County netted drug-related arrests this week, according to Sheriff Eddy Rice. Both took place along Gun Club Road.

"Okmulgee County Deputies have been patrolling high crime areas recently and have initiated contact on two separate traffic stops that have led to arrests and further investigations into the manufacture of methamphetamine," Rice said in a news release.

Joshua Henderson and Teresa Lovin were arrested after their vehicle was stopped Monday night near Gun Club and Alt. Highway 75. Deputies Dallas Lang and Stephen Lee found evidence of narcotics, and District Attorney Chief Investigator Robert Frost responded and processed the items as evidence.

Lovin, 45, and Henderson, 28, are being held in the Okmulgee County Jail.

At about midnight January 19, the same deputies were patrolling near U.S. Highway 75 and Gun Club Road when they stopped Vincent Johnson for a traffic violation, Rice said in a news release.

They arrested the 52-year-old man for manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance, maintaining a vehicle where drugs are kept or stored and an outstanding Logan County warrant. Rice said District 25 Drug Task Force Investigator Mike Snyner and Frost were called to the scene to process the meth lab items.
