LINDSAY, Okla. – An early morning wake-up call for some alleged drug dealers in Garvin County Wednesday morning. The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, Garvin County Sheriff’s Deputies and Lindsay police teamed up for a warrant sweep in chilly temperatures.
They had 5 search warrants and 19 arrest warrants for people accused of distributing methamphetamine. Law agents said the group is involved in Mexican-sourced meth sales.
They say the group distributes up to 2 pounds of crystal meth a week.
The sweep started at 6 am. They ended up arrested 12 people they were originally targeting.
OBN Director Darrel Weaver was pleased with the sweep.
“This is really a dismantlement more than a disruption and I think there is a huge difference.
In order to be successful you have to take out wholesale groups and this is what’s happening here.”
