A Tulsa man and a local resident were charged this week with felony drug charges.

Christopher John Brown Jr., 24, and James Larnell Turentine, 21, of Tulsa, were charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of paraphernalia. Authorities allege they had scales and baggies in the home when police arrived Feb. 15.

Court documents state the men had more than 70 grams of marijuana.

Arrest warrants were issued and appearance bonds of $25,000 each were set on the warrants.

Possession of marijuana with intent to distribute is punishable by imprisonment for two years to life and/or a fine of up to $20,000. The paraphernalia count is punishable by imprisonment for up to a year and/or a fine of up to $1,000.

The charges were filed after a Tahlequah Police Department investigation. First Assistant District Attorney Donovan Dobbs is prosecuting the case.

Turentine and Brown will be formally arraigned at a later date. A preliminary hearing will be set at that time. The court will determine at that hearing whether there is sufficient probable cause to hold Turentine and Brown for a jury trial.
