MUSKOGEE, Oklahoma -- Four Muskogee residents who work for Bacone College are in the Muskogee County jail on charges of possession of controlled and dangerous substance, cultivation of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The Muskogee County Sheriff's Office says it got a tip about the possible sale and cultivation of marijuana on and off campus at Bacone College.

During an investigation by the city-county drug task force, officers searched several apartments off campus and an office and several dorm rooms on the campus of Bacone College this week. 

The task force arrested 52-year-old Donald Dupuis and his 26-year-old son, Daniel Dupuis at the school Tuesday night. Officers also arrested 23-year-old Nathan Johnson and Marco Pereira at a trailer home in Muskogee.

School officials say a small baggie of marijuana was found at the office of Donald Dupuis and marijuana plants, cultivation tools and drug paraphernalia was found at the trailer home.

All four worked in the college's maintenance department.

The sheriff's office says the investigation continues and there could be further arrests.

School officials say the college has terminated all four employees' employment.
