He allegedly told investigators he wanted to get his grow up and running before getting the license. On Sept. 23, Guevara was also arrested in a Muskogee residence that allegedly contained two grams of cocaine, scales and baggies for sale, according to police. Police also allegedly found almost 30 pounds of marijuana in the residence, along with guns.
