Man caught with large amount of methamphetamine and cocaine pleads no contest to Class 2 felony

YORK – Albert Hardiman, 36, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, who was caught with a very large amount of methamphetamine and cocaine in York County, has pleaded no contest to a Class 2 felony.

He changed his plea this past week in York County District Court.

Initially, he was charged with possession of 28-139 grams of methamphetamine, a Class 1C felony; possession of a controlled substance, a Class 4 felony; and having no drug tax stamp, a Class 4 felony. The charges were amended to one count of attempt of a Class 1 felony, which is a Class 2 felony that carries a possible maximum sentence of 1-50 years in prison.

A deputy with the York County Sheriff’s Department was traveling south on Highway 81 in the area of County Road 9. According to court documents, he saw a speeding vehicle and a stop was initiated.

The deputy says in the affidavit when the vehicles stopped, the driver got out and opened the hood. The deputy told the driver, which was Hardiman, to get back inside and he complied.

The deputy said he was very nervous and fumbled about when trying to provide the requested documents.

During a consent search of the vehicle, deputies found methamphetamine, cocaine and a digital scale. The methamphetamine weighed 45.1 grams and the cocaine weighed in at 2.1 grams, which are substantial amounts.

Sentencing has been scheduled for March 25.
