Local woman jailed for possession of drug paraphernalia

Sara Redbird Eversole, 21, of Tahlequah, was booked for possession of drug paraphernalia. Deputies stopped a vehicle and later received assistance from Tahlequah Officer Cory Keele and his canine partner. The dog reportedly alerted to possible drugs, and officers found a small bag containing a white, powdery substance in Eversole’s purse. Deputies said the substance field-tested positive as methamphetamine.
