Two Stillwater men sentenced on drug charges

A Stillwater man must serve 77 days in jail and five years of probation in connection with an incident involving drugs that took place on Nov. 1, 2012.

Charles William Myers, 20, was charged with drug possession after police were called to a home on the 900 block of Abbott Street West. The owner of the residence had called police after a fight occurred at his home between himself and a man and woman.

According to court documents, the owner had told Myers and his friends, who had been staying with him, to leave because they were doing methamphetamine (meth) in his home. The homeowner told police that after he told Myers to leave, Myers punched him and cut him. Myers was arrested and taken to jail. During booking at the jail, a baggie was found in Myers’ pants pocket and tested positive for meth.

In addition to his jail time, Myers must pay a $100 fine plus surcharges and fees, submit to random drug testing and abstain from alcohol and drug use.

In a separate and unrelated incident, another Stillwater man must serve 30 days in jail in connection with a drug charge filed against him on Sept. 5, 2012.

Aaron Joseph Titel, 28, had a search warrant executed on his home on the 1100 block of Meadowview Drive near Stonebridge Elementary School. During a search, officers found a large amount of marijuana in a kitchen cabinet, and psilocybin mushrooms were also found. Drug paraphernalia, along with three bundles of cash totaling 3,000 was found. A semi-automatic gun and two other pistols were found in the home.

Court documents state that the man told police the marijuana in the residence was his and that he had been selling marijuana for nine to 10 years. He also told police that the cash found in his home was from marijuana sales. He told officers the mushrooms were for his own personal use.

The marijuana had a weight of 702.8 grams, and the mushrooms had a package weight of 5.8 grams.

Titel must serve his jail sentence, which can be completed as a sentence to serve, as well as abstain from alcohol and drug use, submit to random testing and attend a sobriety support group. A biological specimen must be entered for DNA purposes, and he also must pay a fine of $200 plus surcharge and fees.
