OKLAHOMA CITY – A search warrant leads to a pair of arrests after police allegedly found 12 pounds of high-grade marijuana inside a local home.
Authorities say 58-year-old Deborah Bryne and 22-year-old Patrick Bryne were taken into custody last week.
Officials say they suspected Patrick of selling marijuana from their home near S. W. 59th St. and Walker Ave.
After searching the home, police found a detailed ledger of finances related to the alleged distribution of the drugs.
Several names were listed on the books, including the name “mom.”
According to the police affidavit, officers found 49 sealed four-ounce packages of marijuana, scales and pipes.
Both mother and son have been charged with maintaining a home where drugs are kept or sold and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
The arrest report indicates Deborah Bryne worked for Parmalee Elementary School in Oklahoma City.
Tierney Tinnin, a spokesperson for the Oklahoma City Public School District, released a statement, saying, “The district has become aware of the arrest of a Parmalee Elementary School employee. The employee has been removed from the school and appropriate administrative action will be taken pending the outcome of the Oklahoma City Police Department investigation.”
