Police officers investigating a suspicious vehicle outside the Cimarron Correctional Facility in Cushing, Oklahoma, ended up arresting the driver for marijuana possession Monday afternoon.

According to Cushing police, just after 1:30 p.m. officers responded the Cimarron Correctional Facility, located at 3200 S. Kings Highway, in reference to a suspicious white SUV.

Upon arrival, officers observed the white SUV on the perimeter road. The perimeter road, which completely surrounds the facility, is closed to civilian traffic.

Based on the location of the vehicle and their knowledge of past incidents involving contraband being thrown over the facility fences, officers spoke with driver, George Broadie II, who was standing outside his vehicle.

Broadie, a 24-year-old Altus resident, told officers that he was there to pick up his cousin, who was being released. During questioning, police said Broadie showed signs of deception. Officers then asked Broadie if there was anything illegal in his vehicle, which he said no.

Officers said they then asked Broadie for consent to search his vehicle, which he granted. Broadie opened the rear hatch of his vehicle.

During the search of the rear compartment, officers said they found three baggies containing a green leafy substance. The green leafy substance field-tested positive for marijuana.

Broadie was arrested and transported to the Cushing Police Department, where he was held on a complaint of possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Broadie is expected to be transported to the Payne County Sheriff's Department Tuesday.

“I would like to commend the teamwork displayed by both Cimarron Correctional Staff and Cushing Officers, to help remove these drugs from our city”, Chief Tully Folden said.
