OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City woman is out on bail after she was arrested for allegedly threatening to kill an officer investigating her family suspected of running a drug trafficking ring in the city.
Margery Weed, 54, was arrested and booked into the Oklahoma County Jail.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Oklahoma City Police began an investigation of the threats after an officer — who is investigating a number of members of Weed’s family — was contacted by Weed through Facebook. The officer told Weed to not contact him and that he was going to authorities.
Numerous court records and filings document the length to which investigators have been looking into Weed family members, going back to at least January 2016, with a number of arrests.
“Majority of those arrests involved possession of CDS or drug charges,” said Capt. Bo Matthews. “At least 60 pounds of narcotics taken, over $90,000 taken during these arrests.”
According to the affidavit, investigators had been monitoring phone calls of her son, Brandon Weed, at the Oklahoma County Jail. Brandon Weed, 20, is charged with several counts of felony drug possession and distribution charges and currently being held on $1,000,000 bond. He is also facing a number of other criminal felony drug charges.
Court documents say Brandon Weed is “attempting to run his drug enterprise” from inside the jail.
On November 15, in a recorded call between Brandon and his mother, Margery says “…(a defense attorney) better get to (the officer) before I do cause if that man comes to arrest me for nothing I’ll kill him.”
In a second call, two days later, Margery Weed tells her son “…if (the officer) doesn’t leave me the (expletive) alone I’m gonna kill him…I can’t deal with him anymore…him and his people.”
On November 20, Margery Weed is alleged to have told her son that she had a dream she and several others walked through the officer’s neighborhood and stood in front of (the officer’s) house.
“We take all kinds of threats very seriously,” said Matthews. “Numerous officers get threats, when they arrest somebody. That occurs. But it’s a very serious matter and we look at it with a lot of concern.”
Wednesday, Oklahoma City Police filed an arrest warrant for Margery Weed for threatening to perform an act of violence involving serious bodily harm or death.
Weed’s bond was set at $10,000 and she was released Thursday afternoon. She has not yet been formally charged.
