Former Police Chief Arrested on Meth Charges

The former interim police chief for a small Craig County town has been charged with multiple felonies, including manufacturing methamphetamine.

Until he was terminated in July 2014, Brian Lee Mossier, 41, served as interim police chief of Big Cabin, Oklahoma, a town of less than 300 people in northeastern Oklahoma. Now, he and his wife, Jamie Marie Mossier, 38, are charged with drug crimes, gun crimes, and child neglect after being accused of manufacturing methamphetamine in their Chelsea home. Both Mossiers have been arrested, but are free on $100,000 bond.

Brian Mossier is charged in Mayes County District Court with manufacturing a controlled dangerous substance/possession of material with intent to manufacture a CDS, possession of a CDS (methamphetamine), marijuana possession, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a credit card belonging to another, possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony, possession of surveillance equipment in the commission of a felony, and child neglect.

His wife Jamie faces similar charges: manufacture of a CDS/possession with intent to manufacture, possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony, possession of surveillance equipment in the commission of a felony, one felony and one misdemeanor count of possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and child neglect.

According to reports, Jamie Mossier admitted to purchasing pseudoephedrine and giving it to her husband for the purpose of manufacturing methamphetamine. Brian Mossier allegedly admitted to manufacturing meth for his and his wife's personal use.

The credit card charge stems from the alleged discovery of a Big Cabin Police Department credit card at Mossier's home. He allegedly took the card because he was angry with how he had been treated by the town. He reportedly used the police department's credit card to purchase gasoline for his personal vehicle.

In Oklahoma, the penalties are severe for meth possession, and even more harsh for meth manufacture. A first offense of possession of a Schedule I or II drug is a felony punishable by 2 to 10 years in prison. For a second offense, the penalty is doubled: 4 to 20 years in prison.

A person charged with manufacturing methamphetamine faces 7 years to life in prison if convicted--even for a first offense.
