Waldron woman pleads guilty to federal drug charges for methamphetamines

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Megan Marie Rogers, age 34, of Waldron, Arkansas entered a guilty plea to Drug Conspiracy.

The Superseding Indictment alleged that beginning in November 2019, and continuing until February 2020, within the Eastern District of Oklahoma and elsewhere, Rogers willfully and knowingly agreed with Kyle Lee Hamby, Marty Ray Campbell, Chelsea Lynne Cox, and others to acquire large amounts of methamphetamine and distribute it for money, and that specifically, on February 21, 2020,

Rogers was arrested in Waldron, Arkansas in possession of methamphetamine and firearms.

The charges arose from a joint investigation led by Homeland Security Investigations (“HSI”), the Drug Enforcement Administration (“DEA”), and the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office. Numerous other agencies played important roles, including HSI task force members from the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office, the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office, the Wagoner County Sheriff’s Office, and the Tulsa Police Department, and DEA McAlester HIDTA Task Force members, Bureau of Indian Affairs and the DA District 18 Drug Task Force.

The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, Poteau Police Department, DA District 16 Drug Task Force, Arkoma Police Department, LeFlore County Sheriff’s Office, and Choctaw Nation Tribal Police also assisted.

This case is part of the Department of Justice’s Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) program. The OCDETF program is the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s drug supply reduction strategy. OCDETF was established to conduct comprehensive, multilevel attacks on major drug trafficking and money laundering organizations.
