GROVE - A shipment of Soma tablets intended to be delivered to the owner and operator of an Internet pharmacy closed down by authorities was seized Friday.
Approximately 8,400 Soma tablets intended to be delivered to Norman Edward Enyart Jr., also known as J.R. Enyart, were seized from a private courier in Tulsa, said Mark Woodward, spokesman for the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control.
Bryce Lair, assistant district attorney, said he plans to file charges against Enyart that will include maintaining a dwelling where drugs are kept, possession of drugs with intent to distribute, operating an illegal pharmacy, possession of firearms in the commission of a felony and possession of marijuana and paraphernalia.
“Mostly likely he (Enyart) will be facing another charge,” Woodward said, referring to the seized tablets.
Enyart, 60, of Grove, was operating four Internet sites for his pharmacy, known both as Grand Lake Pharmacy and Grove Pharmacy, according to an arrest affidavit.
Each site brought in an average of $6,000 a day, the affidavit alleges.
He surrendered to authorities and is free on $46,250 bail. Telephone calls to Enyart's attorney were not returned.
Randolph “Randy” Earl Enyart, 45; Kristina Donohoe, 25, and Tammy Walker, 37, all of Grove, were arrested Feb. 29.
They were arrested after the Delaware County Drug Task Force raided two residences belonging to J.R. and Randy Enyart, along with two storage units.
Authorities seized 2,000 Soma pills, other pills, marijuana, prescriptions, prescription orders, computers, 25 to 30 guns, computers, $17,000 in cash and about 250 untaxed cartons of cigarettes.
Soma is a muscle relaxant and pain reliever.
It is a controlled dangerous drug substance under Oklahoma law, but not under federal law.
Enyart, the only licensed pharmacist with the Seneca-Cayuga Tribe, lost his license after failing to pay the tribe rent he owed, tribal authorities said.
State Pharmacy Board records show a J.R. Enyart was rejected for a state license in October 2005.
Under board questioning, Enyart admitted having been convicted of a felony several years earlier, but couldn't recall whether he had served jail time, board meeting minutes show.
