Pair Jailed On Stolen Vehicle Possession Charge

Patti Weaver


(Stillwater, Okla.) – A Perkins woman and a homeless ex-convict, who previously lived in Perkins, have been charged with possessing a stolen vehicle on Oct. 2 – less than a month after she was placed on probation for possessing a gun and methamphetamine with intent to distribute, court records show.

Alisia Mae Porter, 32, and Erik Allen Harmon, 37, who both remain in the Payne County Jail, have been accused of possessing a dark blue 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser on Oct. 2, which had been stolen on Sept. 17, court records show.

In the stolen car case on which Porter has been ordered to appear in court on Dec. 4, she was also charged with obstructing Payne County Sheriff’s Deputy Rockford Brown and possessing methamphetamine on Oct. 2; Harmon has been charged with possessing marijuana on Oct. 2. Harmon has also been charged with delivering methamphetamine to a confidential informant on Sept. 6 in Stillwater.

In her earlier case, Porter was placed on six years’ probation on Sept. 8 with an order to have random drug tests, a substance abuse evaluation and any recommended follow-up treatment, as well as perform 50 hours of community service and pay $2,760 in assessments along with court costs.

In that case in which Harmon was also charged, Porter was driving with two male passengers when the trio was arrested near a trailer park in the 2900 block of E. 6th Street in Stillwater following a traffic stop in June, court records show.

“When Alisia opened her door, I observed a black Taurus .45 caliber revolver in the door pocket,” that she said was hers, Stillwater Police Officer Josh Carson wrote in an affidavit. The Taurus was loaded with six rounds, according to the affidavit.

“When Alisia moved, I immediately noticed another pistol near the left hand of the front seat passenger,” Carson wrote in his affidavit. “The Lorcin pistol was chamber-loaded and had five rounds in the magazine,” according to the affidavit.

“I located another .22 caliber rifle in the back seat,” that was chamber-loaded with a single shot, Carson wrote in his affidavit.

“I observed a plastic baggy containing a crystal substance next to the front passenger seat,” that appeared to be methamphetamine and smelled like either, which is used in the process of making methamphetamine, Carson wrote in his affidavit.

“Sgt. Savory found a paper towel that contained a yellowish crystal substance that also smelled like ether,” in a lunch pail, the affidavit said.

“I walked back to Alisia and asked her what she was doing with the methamphetamine and the guns. Alisia told me she made the methamphetamine we found in the paper towels and explained that it was fake,” Carson wrote in his affidavit.

“Alisia told me she came to the trailer park with Erik (Harmon) and Lonnie (her other passenger) to ‘rip people off,’” Carson alleged in his affidavit.

After the trio was arrested, the substance in the napkins did not test positive for methamphetamine, but a substance in a sunglasses case indicated the presence of methamphetamine, the affidavit alleged.

Charges of methamphetamine and gun possession were dropped in July by the prosecution due to insufficient evidence against Harmon, but after they were re-filed in August, a warrant was issued for his arrest that was served on Oct. 2, court records show.

Porter’s other passenger, Lonnie Jacob Franklin, 22, of Stillwater, pleaded guilty last month to possessing methamphetamine and a rifle during the commission of a felony for which he was given a three-month jail term followed by nine years and nine months of probation with a order to have an in-patient drug treatment program.

Franklin was also ordered to have random drug tests along with any treatment recommended in a substance abuse evaluation as well as perform 50 hours of community service and pay $2,760 in assessments as well as court costs, records show.
