A maroon pickup was not hard for sheriff's deputies to spot after they received a tip that it was on its way to deliver drugs to a rehabilitation center.

On Monday, a McAlester man whom authorities said was the vehicle's driver was charged in Pittsburg County District Court with four felony counts. Brack Bruce, 41, was arrested about 7:30 p.m. Sunday as he was driving through the gate of Arrowhead State Park toward a drug rehabilitation center operated by Narconon Arrowhead.

He was charged in district court with two counts of possession of a controlled and dangerous substance, possession of unlawful drug paraphernalia and transporting an open container.

Undersheriff D.G. Stonecipher said deputies stopped the pickup and confiscated a syringe filled with what was believed to be methamphetamine. He said the man also had a small amount of marijuana and an open container of beer.

Bruce posted $2,000 bail Monday and was released.
