OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma City police swooped into several different neighborhoods to bust convicted felons with a trove of guns and drugs.
A search warrant filed Monday will allow investigators to search a safety deposit box from a bank in Midwest City.
They expect to find a lot of cash from the drug ring, because the main suspect got busted two years ago and, that time, police seized well over $100,000 in drug money.
Police seized 15 pounds of marijuana, cocaine, Lortab, hundreds of Xanax bars and more than 1,200 ecstasy pills in the drug bust.
They also found a pile of rifles, a shotgun and stolen pistols.
Nikimba Fletcher, Paul Williams and Julian Vera were arrested.
Investigators said they were running an illegal narcotics operation out of their homes and distributing the drugs to several smaller drug dealers in the metro.
Darrell Johnson’s home was one of the houses raided near S.W. 104th and S. Western.
He wouldn’t come to the front door and shut his garage door on us once he saw our vehicle.
Johnson’s landlord didn’t want to show her face.
She told us she had no idea they were selling drugs out of the home she’s rented to them for months.
All three suspects have bonded out of jail.
Fletcher and Johnson have been in trouble together before for kidnapping two young teens in 2011 and trafficking cocaine.
Then, in 2014, Fletcher got picked up on a federal warrant for drugs.
At her home, agents seized nearly $100,000 in cash and another $70,000 from a safe deposit box at a local bank.
Now, two years later, investigators expect to find that kind of drug money once again.
Formal charges against the suspects are pending.
