CANADIAN COUNTY, Okla. - Authorities say they discovered $75,000 in stolen goods, a loaded gun and a marijuana growth behind locked gates, and the victims span across multiple counties.

Police say they were tipped off to a home in rural Canadian County, just outside Yukon.

"We found four individuals who were outside at the property, and there were two individuals who were inside a camper,” Canadian County Undersheriff Chris West said.

Authorities say they got a search warrant, members of the SWAT team and an armored vehicle and went to the property.

They say they found a stolen truck, meth, marijuana, Xanax and a loaded AK-47 rifle. They also say the people who lived here had surveillance cameras everywhere.

"Over a dozen cameras. One was to the entrance of the property. There were several that were on the marijuana grow. There was a marijuana grow that was there. There were several plants that they'd been trimming from and cultivating,” West said.

Six people were arrested including a woman who allegedly barricaded herself inside a stolen travel trailer on the property, another man who tried to run into the woods and a man who spoke with NewsChannel 4 and claimed all he was doing at the time was stopping by to pick up some lawn mower blades.

"I didn't see nothing, and I didn't know anything was stolen,” Barry Sharp said.

Sharp has since been released from jail, but as he was leaving the property again, another man showed up. That man, Ramon Mendez, says police told him this is where he might find his stolen SUV.

"They gave me this address and said my truck is over here,” Mendez said.

All six suspects are facing several charges.
