OK -Officials with the District Attorney's Office expect to file drug and wildlife charges against a Tahlequah man arrested last Friday.
First Assistant District Attorney Donovan Dobbs said Roland Clinton Hobbs, 59, was arrested after investigators from District Attorney Richard L. Gray's drug task force and Cherokee County sheriff's deputies served a search warrant on his home.
Dobbs said Hobbs had a frozen eagle in a freezer, and the possession of such a bird is a felony. Law enforcement personnel also seized a white, powdery substance believed to be methamphetamine, and a green, leafy substance believed to be marijuana. Dobbs said Hobbs also had some law enforcement badges in his possession.
Hobbs was booked into the Cherokee County Jail on charges of possession of a surveillance camera in the commission of a felony, possession of a scanner in the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony, possession of controlled drug with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, and possession of paraphernalia.
Dobbs said the drugs, surveillance equipment and firearms were seized during service of the search warrant. Hobbs will be formally arraigned after charges are filed.
