  (Stillwater, Okla.) – A Cushing man on probation for possessing marijuana with intent to distribute and maintaining a house where drugs were kept in the 900 block of E. Ninth Street in 2014 has been charged with possessing methamphetamine, along with actual physical control of a vehicle while under the influence of liquor at 104th and Sangre Road in rural Stillwater on Monday.
    Adrian Payne Burns, 28, was released from the Payne County Jail today after posting $7,500 bond, with an order to appear in court on March 13 with an attorney, a sheriff’s spokesman told KUSH this afternoon.
    If convicted of his felony methamphetamine charge, Burns could be given a prison term of two to 10 years and a fine up to $10,000, court records show.
    If convicted of his misdemeanor alcohol-related charge, Burns could be given a jail term of 10 days to one year and a fine up to $1,000, court records show.
    Two and one-half years ago, in a case investigated by Cushing Police Chief Tully Folden, Burns was charged with possessing marijuana with intent to distribute, maintaining a house where drugs were kept, and possessing drug paraphernalia described as baggies, prescription bottles, pipes, glass containers, rolling papers, a grinder and a scale, all on Sept. 18, 2014.
    After pleading guilty to the three-count drug charge in 2015, Burns was placed on 10 years’ probation with an order to enroll in the Payne County Drug Court program, which he completed in July 2016, court records show.
    Burns was also ordered to follow all the treatment recommendations contained in a background report for the court, perform 100 hours of community service, and pay $2,000 in fines and assessments, court records show.
