Woman Arrested for Drugs, Child Endangerment

Posted: Updated:

ELGIN Okla_ Several children were removed from an Elgin home after deputies responded to a domestic dispute and found methamphetamine inside the house.

When deputies arrived, they found two women arguing, both claiming the other had been "smoking dope." It didn't take long for deputies to find evidence of illegal drug use.

After a short walk through, deputies were able to spot drug paraphernalia inside the home. Even worse, three young children were there. Deputies say both women then consented to further search of the home, leading to one of their arrests.

Deputies arrested Brenda Chockpoyah after a drug dog alerted deputies to drugs inside her garage and a purse inside her bedroom. Before the search, deputies say Chockpoyah asked the officer if she could take her medication out of her purse. Deputies say she tried to conceal what she was doing. Police told everybody inside the home to go outside. That's when drug dogs alerted on her purse and in her garage. That's also when deputies spotted what appeared to be two crack pipes, other drug paraphernalia, and a bag of crystal meth. At first, Chockpoya admitted the drugs were hers, but then she changed her mind, saying she didn't know who they belonged to.

That's when deputies arrested Chockpoya for possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and child endangerment. The children did not belong to her and were released to the custody of their mother.

Chockpoya has pleaded not guilty to the charges, and her bond has been set for $5,000. At last check, she has not bonded out and remains in the Comanche County Detention Center. Her preliminary hearing is set for Feb. 27.
