LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –Four people were arrested and more than five pounds of marijuana was confiscated following a traffic stop Thursday evening and a subsequent search warrant.

Detectives with the Lawton Police Department’s Special Operations Section saw a maroon pickup turn into the middle lane on Northwest Cache Road Thursday evening and called for a patrol unit to stop the truck for an improper turn. A K-9 unit was called in for an open air search; they had a positive alert.

Police found a bag with 132 grams of marijuana in a laptop bag in the center console and a second bag with 6 grams of marijuana. The driver, 50-year-old Aubrey Smart, and the passenger, 38-year-old Mistye Hawkins, were arrested.

Police continued their investigation after the traffic stop and were granted a search warrant for Aubrey Smart’s home near Southwest 15th Street and Bishop Road. During the search, police found more than five pounds of hydroponic marijuana, a large amount of hashish and meth.

Charles Pistole, 47, and Ian Plymesser, 34, were at the home and were arrested.

Detective Lombardo says the selling of marijuana has been an increasing problem in Lawton, but what they found in the house showed that it could be more than just selling.

"They saw evidence of a future, possible cultivation of marijuana at this residence that included a large growing tent," Det. Lombardo said.

Detective Lombardo says the amount of hash found in the home was unusual.

Aubrey Smart was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of methamphetamine and making an improper turn.

Mistye Hawkins was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia and three outstanding warrants.

Charles Pistole was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a firearm after a felony conviction and a Comanche County warrant.

Ian Plymesser was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a firearm after a felony conviction.

Smart, Pistole and Plymesser all lived in the home together.

The charges will be presented to the Comanche County District Attorney’s Office on Monday.

Police say the approximate street value of the confiscated drugs is $56,200.

    Hundreds of disabled people and their advocates gathered at the capitol and met with state lawmakers to demand the cuts to services stop. State agencies have been told to brace for more cuts due to a nearly $900-million budget gap. "If everyone's paying their taxes, if everyone's paying their premiums, if people have health insurance they don't have to go to the emergency room and not having to fight through government assistance healthcare.."

    The Department of Public Safety is anticipating another 15-percent budget cut. If that happens, they say they will have to close 25 driver’s license exam stations across Oklahoma. Some of the notable stations include Edmond, Norman and Shawnee. The closures would force some Oklahomans to travel more than 100 miles to the nearest exam station.
