A former Rogers County commissioner has been arrested in a case involving runaway juveniles and drugs.

Rogers County deputies arrested 44-year-old Randy Baldridge on Tuesday.

Arrest reports show that deputies had received information from multiple sources that Baldridge was harboring juvenile runaways.

When deputies went to the residence in Tiawah, they located Baldridge and a 16-year-old male who was a runaway from Tulsa County.

Deputies reported that they found drugs and drug paraphernalia that Baldridge admitted buying for the juveniles.

Baldridge was arrested on a variety of complaints, including harboring an endangered runaway and distribution of a controlled and dangerous substance to a minor.

This is not Baldridge's first run-in with the law. FOX23 reported in 2007 that a federal jury indicted Baldridge on charges of fraud, conspiracy and money-laundering.

Not surprised by this. Worked with this man for about 2 1/2 years and tried to tell everyone he's no good but he was a smooth talker and everyone bought it. Good to see that the truth finally came out.
