(SPIRO, Okla.) The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics (OBN) arrested the owner of a medical marijuana dispensary in Spiro on Wednesday for selling methamphetamine out of the store to undercover Agents. OBN Spokesman Mark Woodward said Agents also served an Emergency Suspension Order shutting down the business.
“On two separate occasions, our undercover Agents have recently purchased meth from the owner of ‘Left Handed Okies’ dispensary in Spiro. Both of the transactions took place inside the dispensary office,” said Mark Woodward, OBN Spokesman. Wednesday afternoon, Woodward said Agents arrived at the dispensary (15627 US HWY 271) and arrested 38-year old Jeffrey Peregrino. Peregrino was booked into the Le Flore County Jail where he faces two counts of Trafficking Methamphetamine. OBN Agents also took custody of the marijuana products inside the dispensary. The Le Flore County District Attorney’s Office and the District 16 Drug Task Force assisted OBN in the investigation.
