TAHLEQUAH — Two Tulsa women are facing drug-trafficking charges after their April arrests by Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers.

Troopers stopped 37-year-old Amy Dawn Scotti and 44-year-old Dana Marie Griggs, also known as Dana Drywater, at about 12:35 a.m. April 20 on South State Highway 82, near State Highway 100, according to citations issued by the troopers.

According to prosecutors, troopers found methamphetamine – court documents indicate somewhere between 20 and 200 grams – along with syringes and a glass smoking pipe.

Scotti and Griggs are both charged with trafficking in illegal drugs, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

Court documents show Scotti is free on a $22,000 bond and Griggs is free on a $20,000 bond. Both are due in court at 1 p.m. May 13 for their initial appearances in front of Associate District Judge Mark Dobbins.

Drug-trafficking charges could result in a prison sentence of four years to life.
