(Stillwater, Okla.) — An ex-convict who got out of prison two months ago after serving eight years for kidnapping was charged today with three others with manufacturing methamphetamine and possessing the drug in the 700 block of E. Main Street in Cushing on Sunday.
Robert Lee Neely, 29, who lived in the 1400 block of E. Cherry Street in Cushing, remains in the Payne County Jail in lieu of posting $250,000 bail in the case investigated by Cushing police, court records show.
Neely was convicted of kidnapping, car theft, first-degree burglary, running a road block and escape from a penal institution, all in 2002 in Woodward County, state Department of Corrections records show.
Neely is currently serving 20 years of probation on his car theft and burglary convictions, DOC records show. He also has a 2002 conviction for shoplifting in Payne County in 2000, DOC records show.
Neely’s co-defendants, all of whom remain jailed in lieu of posting $100,000 bail each, are Cady Dawn Jafek, 20, of Stillwater; Tammie Lynn Gualco, 32, of Cushing; and Richard Ryan Gualco, 32, of Cushing, court records show.
The four are accused together of manufacturing methamphetamine at the Gualcos’ residence in the 700 block of E. Main Street in Cushing on Sunday, as well as possessing the drug.
