OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma City Police, in concert with Oklahoma County and the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, raided three properties Friday morning searching for at least three accused drug dealers.

About 4 a.m. officers attempted to serve several warrants at a drug house in the 300 block of S.E. Grand Blvd.

Detectives found a small amount of drugs and arrested two people in vehicles leaving the scene with a small amount of narcotics.

Police said information they obtained at the first house led them to a second, right across the street, on the north side of S.E. Grand Blvd.

About 10 a.m. police busted in the front door and window to the second house and searched a third property where they thought a suspect may have been hiding. 

“This was considered a high-risk arrest because we had information to believe that there were weapons and possible gang activity at these two locations,” Oklahoma City Police Captain Dexter Nelson said.

Police arrested two others for possession of marijuana and eluding police.

According to neighbors, both properties are well-known drug houses where dealers sell meth and crack.

Police took ammunition and a small amount of narcotics into evidence.

All four arrests were minor suspects, not the kingpins detectives were seeking.
