Jailer faces felony charge in drug case

Robinson accused of allowing cocaine, marijuana in

A felony charge has been filed against a Muskogee County/City Detention Facility jailer who authorities say allowed contraband into the jail.

Cree Arianna Robinson, 19,  is accused of allowing Deandre Ramone Buchanan, 19, who was being booked into the jail, to bring a plastic bag which contained what authorities believe to be cocaine and marijuana into the jail, court documents state.  

She is charged with accessory to felony.

Buchanan was originally arrested for public intoxication, court documents state. During the booking process, he was found to be in possession of eight small baggies that field tested positive for cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia, court documents state. Buchanan “tried to hide his drugs inside the property bucket after being read his point of amnesty and saying he didn’t have anything illegal on him,” court documents state.

Buchanan and Shantae Nicole Maxwell, 19, were arrested together. Maxwell was arrested on suspicion of public intoxication, according to District Attorney Larry Moore, and additional charges have not been filed against her.

Buchanan has been charged with unlawful possession of controlled drug with intent to distribute and possession of contraband by an inmate. He was released on $30,000 bond, a jail representative said.

Robinson’s supervisor, Dejohnae Cone, was fired, but not arrested, said Sheriff Charles Pearson. Moore said his office has not received information from the sheriff’s office regarding Cone.

Robinson has been released from jail on $15,000 bond.

A sounding docket is scheduled for May 9 for Robinson and Buchanan. At that time, a date will be set for preliminary hearings for each.
