Major Drug Bust

Weatherford, OK – Okla. narcotics agents arrest more than 50 people

WEATHERFORD, Okla. (AP) Agents from the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics have arrested dozens of people allegedly involved in bringing in drugs from Mexico.

OBN spokesman Mark Woodward says 40 arrest warrants were served in Weatherford and 13 in Lawton. Those arrested face a variety of drug charges.

OBN Director Darrell Weaver says the arrests were the result of an investigation that took more than a year. He says agents often see drug dealers move from metro areas into smaller towns.

Weatherford is about 70 miles west of Oklahoma City. Agents began raiding homes there before dawn Friday, looking for people suspected of bringing in methamphetamine, marijuana and cocaine.
