A Guthrie man is being held in the Beckham County Detention Center on a large bond for allegedly attempting to drop a package of contraband near the North Fork Correctional Center in Sayre, Oklahoma.
20-year-old Sullivan Lee Peltier is being held on a $200-thousand dollar bail bond. It was lowered from a half-a-million dollars at his initial court appearance.
According to court records, North Fork notified the Sayre Police Department that a man wearing a white t-shirt and black shorts had ran across State Highway 152 to the south side of the property. A package containing cell phones, batteries, chargers, and a plastic baggie allegedly containing pills and powder that later tested positive for Methylenedioxy Methamphetamine was recovered near the facility.
A person matching the description in surveillance video, later identified as Peltier, was found in a tree and bush area on the south side of the highway.
In October of 2017, Peltier was arrested for possession and distribution of a controlled dangerous substance in Garvin County. In January of 2018, Peltier was arrested for burglary in Oklahoma County.
Peltier has been charged with trafficking in illegal drugs and introducing contraband drugs to a penal institution.
Peltier is due in court on Monday, September 23rd for a preliminary hearing conference.
