/> The informant told police that she has never known Reese to be out of methamphetamine, police reported.

Reese denied the drugs were his. "Nobody’s selling drugs in front of me,” he told police, according to reports.

Why Reese qualified for the GPS program is unclear. He has multiple drug-related arrests, including while under supervision before, records show.

In 1988, he was given a six-year federal term after pleading guilty to a conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine.

In March 2000, he was sentenced to five years and a month in federal prison for being a felon in possession of a gun. He had been caught with the gun in 1999.

In June 2005, he was ordered back to federal prison for 15 more months for violating conditions of his supervised release. The judge ruled he violated his release conditions because police had arrested him for his alleged involvement in selling cocaine at an Oklahoma City motel.

His trip last year to state prison came after he pleaded guilty to an August 2008 cocaine sale to a police informant. He was given credit toward his five-year term for 103 days spent in the Oklahoma County jail. He spent most of his 10 months before his early release at a prison work center in Frederick, records show.

He is now charged in Oklahoma County District Court with cocaine trafficking and five other felony counts.

He is being held in the Oklahoma County jail.
