Jefferson County Sheriff uncovers possible meth ring

Jefferson/Stephens County_The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department uncovered what could turn out to be a meth ring in both Jefferson and Stephens County on Friday. A tip about a suspicious car on the side of the road just south of Loco began the investigation. Both sheriff's departments are working into the night, and have called in for help from the drug task force for this case.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department got a call on Friday morning that a red Grand Am was on the side of County Road 298 in Loco with a large white bucket filled with an unknown substance beside it. Officials say they assumed the substance was anhydrous ammonia, and waited for someone to return.

Thomas Boss did return, driving up on the Third of Loco in his white Chevy pickup. Boss saw the deputies and took off, leading the deputies on a three car chase into Stephens County. The Stephens County Sheriff's Department joined in the chase, and when Boss finally pulled over, deputies say they found a large amount of drug paraphernalia inside his vehicle, such as: hoses to connect anhydrous tanks, lithium batteries, filters, hosing, ventilation tubes, etc.

Boss was arrested and taken to the Jefferson County Jail, and with his capture came many more leads. Police say these leads took the Stephens County Sheriff's Department to two homes in Loco - including Boss's home - where they found meth and other drug-related materials in one of the homes. At the home where the meth was found, police arrested Jennifer Suckley, of Tulsa, who is being held at the Stephens County Jail.

Police say Boss gave deputies the name of another person being held at the Carter County Jail on an unrelated incident. Deputies are waiting to question the individual. As more information continues to pour in, the two sheriff's departments know that there is more to the case, and it remains under investigation.

The Jefferson County and Stephens County Sheriff's Departments likely will make several more arrests next week. If you have any information about this case, please call the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department at 580-228-2374 or the Stephens County Sheriff's Department at 580-255-3131.
