Man caught with large amount of meth, cocaine in York County sentenced to probation

YORK – Albert Hardiman, 36, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, who was caught with a very large amount of methamphetamine and cocaine in York County, has been sentenced to traditional probation for a Class 2 felony.

His sentencing took place this 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. Hardiman pleaded no contest to the single amended charge.

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.

This week, in York County District Court, he was sentenced to three years of probation. He was also sentenced to 73 days in jail, over the course of three stints in the future, which can be waived by the court if he is found to be in compliance with the terms of his probation.
