PAWHUSKA — Melissa Klomp, 38, Ponca City; Thomas Edward Spears, Dewar, 39, and Theresa Lynn Harvey, aka Mackey, 34, are facing meth trafficking charges in Osage County.
The three were arrested on Jan. 23 following a traffic stop at the Double N Motel parking lot near U.S. 60 and City View.
Osage County deputy Johnny Porter reports in the affidavit that he initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle that Spears was driving.
The deputy searched the vehicle and reports finding a loaded handgun in a purse that was reported stolen out of Wellington, Kan.
Other items reportedly found in the purse include 27 Oxycodone pills, a glass smoking pipe, burnt marijuana, and digital scales.
Porter reports that while he was collecting items out of the vehicle, Mackey came out of one of the motel rooms and said she was friends with Klomp and that Klomp was bringing her bread and a lap top computer.
Mackey reportedly asked the deputy to bring the two items to her. Porter reports as he went to get the bread, he noticed Klomp was gone.
Spears reportedly told the deputy that Klomp slipped her handcuffs and threw a bag of meth on the ground. Porter located the bag of meth and reports it weighed 100.68 grams.
Deputies obtained video footage from the motel which showed Klomp running away as Porter was talking to Mackey about the bread.
Klomp was later arrested at 1901 John Street in Ponca City, the same location that the Oklahoma Department of Corrections had conducted a search warrant at on Jan. 14.
On Jan. 23, after Osage County authorities contacted Kay County authorities about Klomp, The Eighth District Attorney’s office obtained a search warrant and did a sweep of the residence. Klomp was arrested and invoked her rights and demanded to talk to her attorney Scott Loftis. Authorities report finding a loaded magazine, digital scales, meth, and an Oakley jacket that had been reported stolen.
Klomp is facing four felony charges in Kay County that include, possession of meth with intent; receiving stolen property, unlawful use of a police radio and unlawful use of video surveillance equipment.
Bond was set at $100,000. On Feb. 4, Judge David Bandy reduced bond to $20,000. Klomp’s next court date in Kay County is set for March 6.
