ENID, Okla. — An Enid teen is facing up to 20 years in prison after being charged this week with trafficking in a drug commonly known as ecstasy, records show.
Faith Nuttall appeared Thursday before District Judge Dennis Hladik for arraignment on the felony trafficking charge and misdemeanor charges of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. She was free on $30,000 bond and was ordered to return to court April 15 for a bond appearance.
The trafficking charge accuses Nuttall of being in possession of 30 or more tablets of 3,4-Methylenedioxy methamphetamine, more commonly known as ecstasy, on or about March 7. The charge is punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a fine of $25,000 to $100,000. Court records show she turned 18 earlier this month.
According to an affidavit filed in the case, At 10:09 p.m. March 7, Enid Police Department Officer Damien Neiswanger, Lt. Bryan Hart, Sgt. Zeke Frazee and Officer Walter Tuttle stopped a vehicle in the 200 block of North 16th after the Buick Roadmaster "stopped in the clearly marked crosswalk" at 16th and Maine.
Tuttle spoke with the passenger and the driver through the passenger-side window, according to the affidavit. Standing near the vehicle, Neiswanger noted he could smell an odor of burnt and raw marijuana coming from the vehicle.
Tuttle asked both women in the vehicle if they had a medical marijuana card and both said they did not, according to the affidavit. The women were asked to step out of the car to the front of the officers' vehicle. The driver, Nuttall, told the officers there was some marijuana inside the vehicle.
Neiswanger searched the vehicle, finding a plastic bag containing a green, leafy substance in the center console, as well as a metal "dugout" also containing a green, leafy substance. There also was a metal pipe inside the dugout, according to the affidavit. Neiswanger also found a white pill bottle containing multiple multicolored pills and multiple white pills. The multicolored pills had stamps, such as a dolphin and a dragon, on them.
Neiswanger also found a black container with coin bags inside, according to the affidavit. Neiswanger noted through his training and experience, people often use such coin bags to package and sell narcotics. Nuttall was placed under arrest on complaints of trafficking, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
One of the multicolored pills later field tested for methamphetamine/MDMA, according to the affidavit. There were a total of 43 multicolored pills.
