(Stillwater, Okla.) — A Morrison woman arrested in the 1400 block of W. Knipe in Perkins has been charged with possessing a car stolen in Stillwater, driving on a suspended license and possessing methamphetamine along with drug paraphernalia.

Esther Dawn Wilson, 54, who was already being sought on warrants for alleged methamphetamine possession in Payne and Noble counties, remains jailed on $30,000 bail pending a March 2 court appearance on the Payne County charges filed last week, court records show.

Wilson was arrested shortly after 9 p.m. on Jan. 30 following a traffic stop by Perkins Police Officer Billy Laster, who confirmed that the orange Chevrolet El Camino she was driving had been reported as stolen in Stillwater, an affidavit alleged.

The owner of the vehicle said that the defendant, whom he knew as Dawn Wilson, was at the Cimarron Casino in Perkins with her male passenger and wanted a ride to Perry, the affidavit alleged.

The vehicle’s owner said, “his ex-son-in-law used the car to pick them up. He stopped at the On Cue at 14th and Perkins inside Stillwater city limits,” the affidavit alleged.

While his ex-son-in-law used the restroom inside the store, Wilson left in the vehicle with her passenger, the affidavit alleged.

The owner of the El Camino said that his ex-son-in-law ran home and told him that the vehicle was stolen, the affidavit alleged.

When the vehicle was searched, the Perkins officer found three plastic containers containing methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, the affidavit alleged.

Perkins Police Sgt. Kyle Howard located a small spiral notebook that appeared to be a drug sales ledger, the affidavit alleged.
