Drug arrests

By Traci Chapman

An undercover narcotics operation recently resulted in the arrests of two El Reno residents.

Jonthan Cowan, 30, and Brandi Niblett, 22, were arrested Jan. 20 on complaints of distribution of a controlled and dangerous substance, possession of a Schedule IV drug with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, conspiracy to distribute a controlled and dangerous substance and receiving proceeds for illegal drug sales.

Cowan and Niblett were booked into the El Reno municipal jail with a $46,500 bond each, El Reno Deputy Chief Kevin Wilkerson said.

“Charges will be taken to the Canadian County District Attorney’s Office this week,” he said.

Niblett entered a nolo contendere – no contest – plea to an unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance in December in connection with an April arrest. She was given a deferred sentence. If found guilty, that plea could be nullified and she could face a sentence for that alleged offense as well.
