The Kiowa County Sheriff's Office requested OSBI assistance with a case of dogs poisoned in the Roosevelt area. This investigation is on-going. However, in the course of the investigation, deputies and agents learned the Snyder Police Chief was possibly using methamphetamine. Agents interviewed Snyder Police Chief John Phipps (d.o.b. 6-5-74) this afternoon at the Snyder Police Department about the allegations. During the interview, agents discovered the chief was in possession of the illicit drug. Phipps was arrested on a felony complaint of possession of methamphetamine and booked into the Jackson County jail.
