(Stillwater, Okla.) — An Oilton man, who got out of prison last summer after serving time for possessing methamphetamine twice in Cushing, was charged Tuesday with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and having a drug along with drug paraphernalia in Perkins on April 23.

Kyler Gage Ramsey, 24, who previously lived in Cushing, was released from the Payne County Jail on the day he was arrested after posting $10,000 bail, with an order to appear in court on May 28 with an attorney for arraignment on the three-count charge, court records show.

According to the Oklahoma Department of Corrections and court records, Ramsey was originally placed on probation for possessing methamphetamine in Cushing in 2015 and 2016, but in 2018 he was given two concurrent five-year prison terms for violating the terms of his probation. However, Ramsey only served 14 months before he got out of prison on a pre-release supervision program.

Ramsey had also been given a four-year prison term from Tulsa County for false personation in 2018, but he only served 18 months before he was placed on pre-release supervision in August of 2019, DOC records show.

About six weeks after he got out of prison, Ramsey was charged in Payne County with driving on a revoked license and possessing a drug, following a traffic stop at 9:07 pm on Oct. 9, 2019, by Perkins Police Sgt. Kyle Howard, who allegedly found a small plastic baggy of methamphetamine in the vehicle’s center arm rest. Ramsey was released on $2,000 bond two days later and scheduled to appear in court on June 9.

After those misdemeanor charges were filed, a probation/parole officer filed a probation violation report on Oct. 21, 2019, in connection with his pre-release on his two methamphetamine possession cases from Cushing, court records show. The officer recommended no action be taken, but referred Ramsey for substance abuse treatment, court records show.
