OBN Cuts Major Mexican Meth Supply Line

Posted: Updated:

A large-scale methamphetamine trafficking operation is shut down after authorities cut a large line into central Oklahoma Wednesday morning.

The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics (OBN), with other state and local law enforcement agencies, served 15 search warrants and 40 arrest warrants at several locations throughout central Oklahoma as part of a 5-month long undercover investigation.

"In February, we identified a large group of individuals bringing significant quantities of Mexican-produced methamphetamine into central Oklahoma for distribution," said OBN Spokesman Mark Woodward. "So, this group had the capability of supplying an extremely large amount of meth on the streets of Oklahoma."

Woodward said the majority of the warrants were executed in Pottawatomie and Lincoln Counties.

"This is a significant dismantling of a major ring of violators who have made economic gain by peddling their hideous drugs," said OBN Director Darrell Weaver.

The meth shipments would come into central Oklahoma and would be divided and resold in several communities, including Shawnee, Tecumseh, Ardmore, and Oklahoma City.

Woodward said all of the defendants arrested Wednesday were transported to the Pottawatomie County Jail, where they faced a variety of charges including conspiracy to traffic methamphetamine.

As of 3:00 p.m. Wednesday, 25 defendants were in custody.
