MUSKOGEE, Okla. – Authorities in eastern Oklahoma have arrested several people they say were connected to a year-long cocaine distribution.
The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and the Muskogee Police arrested 21 people accused of trafficking cocaine, crack cocaine and marijuana in Muskogee on Friday morning.
Woodward says the cocaine was trafficked out of Mexico and brought into Dallas and Little Rock before being shipped into Muskogee.
Authorities allege the suspects were trafficking one to two pounds of cocaine into Muskogee on a weekly basis.
“After today, the Muskogee area and its citizens are safer because of this joint endeavor. The old song says, “we don’t smoke marihuana in Muskogee,” and I submit nor do we allow cocaine dealers in Muskogee. Today the good guys and the citizens win and the drug traffickers lose,” said Darrell Weaver, the OBN director.
