Press release


On January 17, 2018, at approximately 3:20pm authorities in Northern California were assisted by investigators from the Poteau Police Department, Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, and District 16 Drug Task Force, in the arrest of Poteau City Council member David White.

The charges stem from a year and a half long investigation in which White was federally indicted in the US District Court in Muskogee, OK.

White is charged with one count of drug conspiracy and four counts of distribution of methamphetamine.

White is currently incarcerated in California and awaiting extradition by federal officers back to Oklahoma.
