(CUSTER COUNTY, Okla.) A Weatherford Police Department detective is facing charges after an investigation by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI). Detective Jeremy Anderson turned himself into the Custer County Sheriff’s Department on Tuesday for one charge of Larceny of Controlled Dangerous Substances, a felony, and/or one charge of a Public Officer’s Willful Neglect to Perform their Duty, a misdemeanor.

The investigation began on September 9, 2021, when the OSBI was requested to investigate a substantial quantity of drugs, namely Fentanyl, was discovered missing from the evidence room of the Weatherford Police Department. The narcotics were discovered missing when a drug trafficking case was transferred from District Court to Federal Court for prosecution.

After a lengthy investigation, the case was presented to the Oklahoma Multi-County Grand Jury on April 12, 2022. Indictments for both charges were handed down by the Grand Jury and charges were filed today in the District Court of Custer County.

Anderson was released after posting a $10,000 bond.

The OSBI would like to thank the District II Drug Task Force, the Office of the Attorney General, the Weatherford Police Department and the District II District Attorney’s Office for their assistance and cooperation with the investigation.
