Man busted for Glenpool pot-growing operation

GLENPOOL, Okla. - A Glenpool man was arrested Monday for a marijuana-growing operation in his house, which sits just a few hundred feet from a child care facility.

Rayshawn Crawford was arrested after police served a search warrant, acting on a tip that he was selling pot to neighborhood kids.

According to the police report, officers made entry into Crawford's home near 14100 S. Hickory Pl. and found Crawford, a woman and an infant inside the residence.

Crawford was taken into custody after officers found a baggie filled with a green-leafy substance, which a field test determined was marijuana.

Officers conducted a search of the residence and found marijuana stems, seeds and plants as well as pot-growing paraphernalia in different locations throughout the house and garage.  A number of cellphones were also collected, one of which contained pictures and video of Crawford and marijuana plants, police say.

According to the police report, the woman police found inside the house with Crawford said she believed he was growing tomato plants or flower plants, though officers said in the report they believe Crawford was culltivating marijuana in the presence of the infant.

Crawford was booked into the Tulsa County Jail for various drug charges, including possession of a controlled drug within 1,000 feet of a school or park.
