METH TRAFFICKER JAILED FOLLOWING UNDERCOVER STING
A Pottawatomie County man is behind bars facing drug charges following an undercover sting operation. Mark Woodward, Spokesman for the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, says 43-year old Robert L. Williams of Shawnee was arrested Thursday evening for trafficking methamphetamine.
"Our agents watched the defendant purchase approximately 1 ounce of methamphetamine at a Shawnee hotel. Following the exchange, the suspect was arrested without incident."

Woodward says Williams, who has a history of drug and burglary charges, was transported to the Pottawatomie County jail where he'll face one count of trafficking methamphetamine. Woodward says this was part of an on-going operation by OBN, the District 23 Drug Task Force and the Meeker Police Department targeting methamphetamine sales in the area.
