Pawhuska PD-Ponca City Now - February 23, 2024 3:06 pm

Pawhuska, Okla.-The Pawhuska Police Department is working with OSBI and OBN to
conduct more extensive testing on samples of the suckers and rock candy to assess
any risk to the public. As further information regarding the additional tests is received,
the Pawhuska Police Department will provide an update. As stated Thursday night if you
have candy which is similar or compared to those pictured below, you are encouraged
to contact the Pawhuska Police Department. While we cannot at this time confirm
without more extensive testing that all the homemade suckers and rock candy have been
tainted with an illicit substance, we would ask that the public bring any of the suckers
and/or rock candy in their possession to the Police Station.
Related to this investigation, the Police Department announces that Thursday night a search
warrant was issued upon the residence of a person of interest in this matter. The search
resulted in a arrest on a number of drug related charges; however, these charges are
not specific to the testing of the homemade suckers and rock candy.
The investigation is ongoing into the possible distribution of suckers and rock
candy to residents of Pawhuska that has, on a preliminary basis, tested positive for
methamphetamine. The Pawhuska Police Department has and will be submitting information for the Districts Attorney’s
Office to review for possible criminal charges.
