Police charge 3 with possession of cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana

Two 31-year-old men and a 29-year-old woman were arrested and charged after police found them in possession of 60 grams of ecstasy and other drugs following a welfare check on the driver in the Jaguars Club parking lot, a police release detailed.
Gregory Ifeanyi Okwusogu was charged with possession of ecstasy, a state jail felony, possession of marijuana, a class B misdemeanor, and a parole violation warrant. Talvis Diamond Redic was charged with possession of marijuana, a class B misdemeanor, and Alesha Ann Dean was charged with delivery of ecstasy, a first-degree felony, possession of cocaine, a third-degree felony, tampering with physical evidence, a third-degree felony, prohibited substance in a correctional facility, a third-degree felony, and possession of marijuana, a class B misdemeanor.
Odessa Police Department responded to a theft call at 2:47 a.m. Friday at Jaguars after a wallet was reported stolen, OPD spokesperson Cpl. Steve LeSueur said over the phone.
While officers were at the scene, they reportedly saw Okwusogu asleep behind the wheel of a gray 2016 Ford Fusion with the engine running, the release detailed. Dean was identified as the front passenger, while Redic was seated in the back of the car.
LeSueur said officers performed a welfare check on Okwusogu to make sure he wasn’t intoxicated while the vehicle was running.
Officers reportedly found Okwusogu and Dean to be possession of ecstasy and all three were found to be in possession of marijuana at the scene, the release detailed. All three subjects were placed into custody and transported to the Ector County Law Enforcement Center. While at the jail, Dean was also found to be in possession of 1.1 grams of cocaine and more ecstasy.
Rick’s Cabaret and Jaguars are now considered within city limits and inside OPD’s jurisdiction after an annexation approval this past November by Odessa City Council. The city annexed 2,523 acres that includes several industrial districts.
Okwusogu, Redic and Dean are still in custody as of Friday afternoon, jail records show.
