(Stillwater) — A Cushing man was arraigned Monday on charges of possessing precursors with the intent to manufacture methamphetamine, possessing the drug Xanax without a prescription, and driving with a suspended license on East Sixth Street in Stillwater, all on Sept. 23.
Travis Dale Sharpe, 27, remained jailed Tuesday in lieu of posting $10,000 bail pending an Oct. 6 court appearance when he can ask for a preliminary hearing on his methamphetamine-related charge.
Sharpe is alleged to have had in his possession Coleman fuel, coffee filters, sulfuric acid, pseudoephedrine pills, lithium batteries, iodized salt, measuring cups and straws, with the intent to manufacture methamphetamine, court records show.
If convicted of that felony count, Sharpe could receive a prison sentence of seven years to life, as well as a minimum fine of $50,000, according to the charge filed Monday by prosecutor Tom Lee.
Sharpe could also receive two one-year jail terms and $1,500 in fines if convicted of both misdemeanor counts of possessing Xanax without a prescription and driving under suspension, court records show.
