A couple of Cherokee County Sheriff’s employees could face drug charges.

A Wagoner County investigator has been called in to help determine whether charges should be filed. Last week, authorities found marijuana and drug paraphernalia at the home of Cherokee County Deputy Dusty Ryals and Jailer Lynn Trammel.

Ryals and Trammel say a superior deputy told them to store the marijuana at their home because there was no space at the county evidence room.

The superior has backed up the story.
