Peggs man charged with growing marijuana

TAHLEQUAH — A Peggs man arrested earlier this month by Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics agents has been charged for allegedly cultivating marijuana.

Maynard Ray Mayo Jr., 46, was arrested at a home in the Peggs area after OBN agents said they spotted a marijuana-growing operation on East 630 Road.

Agents made contact with Mayo, who then allegedly admitted to planting, fertilizing and watering the marijuana plants. Agents said Mayo gave them consent to search, and authorities found 34 plants, marijuana seeds, and a smoking pipe.

Mayo was booked into the Cherokee County Detention Center and given a $15,000 bond.

He is set for an initial appearance at 1 p.m. Sept. 11.

Cultivation of a controlled substance can be punishable by two years to life in prison and a fine of up to $50,000.
