(Stillwater, Okla.) – A Cushing man, who escaped from a sheriff’s deputy after crashing his motorcycle, has been charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possessing marijuana with intent to distribute, being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, eluding an officer, possessing drug paraphernalia and operating a motorcycle under revocation, while on probation in another Cushing methamphetamine case.
An arrest warrant was issued on July 1 for Cody Blake Mauck, 24, who was not in the Payne County Jail today, a sheriff’s spokesman told KUSH this afternoon.
Mauck could be given two life prison terms plus 13 years and fined $203,500 if convicted of the six-count charge filed on July 1, court records show.
Payne County Sheriff’s Deputy Nick Myers said that at 2:08 am. on June 21 at Little and Main Street in Cushing, he saw Mauck on a motorcycle that did not have a tag light and was displayed improperly, according to his affidavit.
“Mr. Mauck has a distinctive tattoo on his upper right arm of a skull,” the affidavit said.
The deputy, who knew Mauck had a revoked driver’s license, attempted a traffic stop, the affidavit said.
Mauck accelerated to a high rate of speed and failed to stop at two stop signs — “running the traffic control devices with blatant disregard for public safety. Mr. Mauck had his motorcycle at speeds doubling the speed limit on the residential side streets,” the deputy alleged.
“Once Mr. Mauck approached the intersection of Oak and Howerton Street, he attempted to negotiate the turn, but lost control of the motorcycle, wrecking into the ditch on the east side of the roadway.
“Mr. Mauck then fled on foot in a northeast direction leaving his helmet and glasses on the ground just northeast of the crash location,” the affidavit alleged.
Under the motorcycle seat, the deputy found a brown paper sack containing seven syringes, a spoon with a white crystal substance, a set of rolling papers, a purple zippered bag, three plastic bags containing a large amount of a white crystal substance field-tested as methamphetamine weighing 87.5 grams, and three bags of a green leafy substance field-tested as marijuana weighing 8.8 grams, the affidavit alleged.
“Under the back seat of the motorcycle I located a black and silver semi-automatic Smith and Wesson pistol,” with the magazine loaded with 14 hollow point .40 caliber bullets, the deputy alleged in his affidavit. “Sitting next to the wrecked motorcycle was a Samsung cell phone,” the affidavit said.
“Perkins Wrecker Service was dispatched to my location and took possession of the motorcycle,” the affidavit said.
The drugs and firearm will be sent to the state crime bureau for further analysis, the affidavit said.
A month earlier, on May 22, Mauck pleaded guilty to possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute, escaping from another sheriff’s deputy and operating a motor vehicle while his driver’s license was revoked, court records show.
In that drug case, Mauck was arrested at Auto Brite Car Wash in Cushing at 1:08 p.m. Oct. 1, 2014, when he pulled into one of the car wash bays, Payne County Sheriff’s Deputy Brandon Myers wrote in an affidavit.
“I was familiar with the name Cody Mauck and I had received numerous reports that Cody was selling methamphetamine,” the deputy wrote in his affidavit.
After being arrested, Mauck fled from the sheriff’s deputy, but was caught by Cushing Police Officer Matt Piatt at Moses and Park, the affidavit said.
“Cody started to become lethargic and requested that I take him to the hospital because he was having chest pain.
“I spoke with the owner of the car wash, Kory Reid. He requested the vehicle be towed from his property,” the deputy wrote in his affidavit.
When Mauck’s vehicle was searched, Officer Piatt found in the back seat a black zipper bag containing a working digital scale, a black bag containing a bag that had 18 bags containing a crystal substance and another bag that had eight bags containing a crystal substance, the affidavit said.
The total weight of the bags including one that fell from Mauck’s body was 26.7 grams, the affidavit said. A small piece of the substance field-tested as methamphetamine, the affidavit said.
Also in the black bag were 10 unused bags, six syringes, a small marijuana grinder, two pairs of metal knuckles, a cut-off straw, a syringe cap, a sunglasses case and a small Crown Royal bag, the affidavit said.
“Officer Piatt also located a tattoo kit in the trunk that was stolen from a burglary Cushing had investigated,” the affidavit said.
At the hospital where Mauck was medically cleared, “Cody admitted that the drugs were his and (he) was having a hard time and trying to make some money. He advised he purchased the drugs two days ago and originally purchased an ounce.
“He also admitted that the tattoo items were stolen by a friend,” of a relative, the affidavit alleged.
In that 2014 drug case, on May 22, Mauck was placed on 10 years’ probation except for 120 days in jail with credit for the time he had served, along with an order to enroll in and successfully complete the Payne County Drug Court program, as well as pay the cost of his incarceration and $1800 in fines and assessments, along with performing 100 hours of community service.
Mauck has a ninth grade education, court records show.
