re-posted from chron.com

SAPULPA, Okla. (AP) — The police chief in Valley Brook is charged with drug trafficking for allegedly having methamphetamine and marijuana when he was pulled over for a traffic violation.

The Oklahoman reports (http://bit.ly/n6zPOx ) Chief Melvin Martin Fisher Jr., was arraigned Wednesday on multiple drug-related charges. The 47-year-old Fisher is free from the Creek County Jail on $31,000 bail.

Fisher’s lawyer Rob Henson says someone else was in the car with Fisher when the Oklahoma Highway Patrol stopped him on Labor Day in Sapulpa. Henson says the drugs were not found on Fisher and that he denies he knew the drugs were in the vehicle.

A preliminary hearing is set for Oct. 5. Henson says Fisher will fight the charges.

Valley Brook is a town of less than 1,000 people north of Moore.
