A man charged with drug trafficking

May 27 – State drug officers recently raided a local business, leading to the seizure of a large amount of marijuana and the indictment of a man for drug trafficking.

Zheng Wang, 53, was charged in this case. Wang was charged on May 23 in the Pontotoc County District Court with the felony of illegal drug trafficking.

The raid took place at Britannica Green, Inc., located at 18051 County Road 3588, according to Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics Agent Jillian Young.

Young said the “knock and announce” search warrant was requested in April after a person, Shea Love, gave up her OBN registration.

“Love was the 100% owner listed on the recording and returned it after discovering that he was listed as 100% owner on several recordings, of which he had no knowledge,” Young said. “To legally grow, distribute and/or possess marijuana in the State of Oklahoma, an Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority license and OBN registration must be possessed. When Love relinquished registration, he did not there was no longer a valid OBN registration for Britannica Green. , Inc.”

Young said that after officers knocked but received no response, they found the door unlocked and entered. Officers headed for the larger metal building structure where Wang and his wife, Ying Jin chen, exited the building and cooperated with commands to advance toward officers.

“During a search of the residence and property, a total of 104 pounds of processed marijuana flowers, along with 209 pounds of dried marijuana stems were located,” Young said. “This exceeds the 25-pound legal threshold to reach the threshold for marijuana trafficking.”

Young said during a Post Miranda, audio-recorded interview with Wang, Wang said he was the director of cultivation, and also a shareholder of the property.

“He indicated he had another boss, but was unable to provide

information for that person,” Young said.

Wang is due back in court for a preliminary hearing conference at 8:30 a.m. on August 10.

Deputies from the Pontotoc County Sheriff’s Office participated in the raid.
