Charley E. Rouell, aka Charley E. Rouell Jr., 51, of Spiro, Oklahoma, has connections to eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas, and may be traveling to and from Mexico, possibly with his wife, Michelle Nicole Rouell, who is wanted in the Southern District of California for failure to appear on the original charge of importation of methamphetamine and heroin.
