    TULSA, Okla. - A federal judge sentenced 24-year-old Andrew Wade Wyrrick of Owasso to five years and three years of supervised release for gun and drug offenses, according to a Tuesday news release.

    Officials with the U.S. Attorney's Office of the Northern District of Oklahoma said Wyrrick is accused of possessing marijuana with intent to distribute and possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

    U.S. Attorney Trent Shores said Wyrrick's "illegal operation facilitated the transportation and distribution of nearly 200 pounds of marijuana to Tulsa communities."

    "Tulsa police officers initially made contact with Wyrrick during a suspected drug deal. When officers searched his vehicle and questioned the defendant, they found a handgun, more than $2,000, and discovered he was dealing marijuana. They also discovered that he had pleaded guilty just two days earlier to drug distribution. Wyrrick was arrested and later released on bond. Afterward, investigators monitored Wyrrick’s activity, noting that he was continuing to distribute marijuana. He was eventually arrested in April 2018 when he returned from Colorado with duffel bags full of marijuana. At his plea hearing, Wyrrick admitted to traveling to Pueblo, Colorado, in April 2018, to purchase marijuana for the purpose of selling it in northeastern Oklahoma." - U.S. Attorney's Office News Release
