DUNCAN, OK (KSWO) -The search for a suspected killer led the Stephens County Sheriff's Office to their second significant drug bust in two weeks.

The bust happened Monday in Duncan, and resulted in the arrest of a suspected meth and marijuana dealer. A previous bust the week before, also in Duncan, led to the arrests of seven people. Stephens County Sheriff Wayne McKinney says these cases show how serious they are about getting rid of drugs in Stephens County.

Sheriff McKinney says they received a call from police in Carter County that they believed a man with an outstanding warrant for negligent homicide was hiding out at a home in Duncan. Sheriff McKinney says when his deputies got there, they didn't find their suspect, but they did find something illegal. 

"They were overcome with a pungent odor of marijuana. At that time, they got a search warrant," Sheriff McKinney explained.

Sheriff McKinney says they arrested the homeowner, Alan Davis, on suspicion of dealing drugs because of all the paraphernalia found inside the home.

"Significant amount of methamphetamines in the same place…there is no doubt in our mind that the individual's intention was to distribute," he said.

Sheriff McKinney says he is fed up with what drugs are doing to the community, so he is encouraging his deputies to think on their feet and be prepared.

"It is a situation where you never know what you are going to get into when the deputies respond to these. We are actively pursuing people that distribute drugs of any kind to our children in this county, and we are going to take a pro-active approach to it. This is just the tip of the iceberg," Sheriff McKinney said.

Sheriff McKinney is also asking the community to do their part.

"Anything that looks out of the ordinary, I encourage the public to call," Sheriff McKinney said.

Allen will face multiple drug charges in Stephens County and is currently being held in the Stephens County Jail.

Sheriff McKinney said they were able to track down the man they were originally looking for, KC Whitten, later that night at another home in Duncan. Whitten is currently in the Stephens County Jail, but will eventually be sent to Carter County where he will be arraigned on the homicide charge.
