(Stillwater, Okla.) — A Tryon man who is on probation for endeavoring to manufacture methamphetamine five years ago in Stillwater has been charged with possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute, having drug paraphernalia and violating a protective order, all in Perkins.

Kyle Jacob Munier, 23, who listed himself as homeless on his application for a court-appointed attorney, remains jailed on $25,000 bail pending a May 4 court appearance when he can seek a preliminary hearing.

If convicted of his three-count charge, Munier could be sentenced to as much as a life prison term plus two years and fined $22,000, court records show.

Munier was arrested on March 20 by Perkins Police Officer George Hannon for an alleged protective order violation, court records show.

“I searched Kyle and found a wallet, a small pocket knife and lighter in his pockets. I asked Kyle what was in his back pack,” Hannon wrote in his affidavit.

“Kyle said ‘I have a torch in the back pack because my lighter doesn’t work,” the affidavit said.

Munier’s back pack contained a digital scale that appeared to have a white crystal residue on it, as well as five small zip lock bags that appeared to have residue in them, the affidavit alleged.

“I also pulled a black box with ‘Biohazard zombie survival gear’ on it. When I opened this box, I found two small straws, one clear and one pink…There was also a syringe that appeared to be used previously,” Hannon wrote in his affidavit.

The officer also found a small glass smoking device with a white residue and two small zip lock bags with a white crystal-like substance that tested positive for methamphetamine, the affidavit alleged.

“I also found a large and small torch in the back pack,” the officer wrote in his affidavit.

“I asked Kyle if he knew what I found. Kyle said, ‘you know what it is – I don’t have to tell you.’

“I asked Kyle how long he’s been doing meth. Kyle said, ‘for a few months,’” the officer alleged in his affidavit.

“I asked Kyle if he injects himself. I did not see any marks on the inside of his elbow.

“Kyle said, ‘I have only shot up about five times. But I can’t do it to myself. Someone else has to inject me,’” the affidavit alleged.

“Kyle would not tell me who injects him or who he purchases the meth from,” the officer wrote in his affidavit.

According to court records, five years ago Munier was charged with a Stillwater man with endeavoring to manufacture methamphetamine in Stillwater, along with possessing the drug and marijuana as well as drug paraphernalia, on Aug. 15, 2010, in Stillwater.

Fourteen months later, Munier pleaded guilty to the charges, court records show.

Two years ago, on Jan. 11, 2013, Munier was placed on five years’ probation under a deferred sentence in that case by Payne County District Judge Phillip Corley, with an order to enroll in and successfully complete the Lincoln County Drug Court program, court records show.
