Drug raid nets 17 suspects.
State Drug Bureau spokesman Mark Woodward says agents have dismantled a large Mexican methamphetamine network in central Oklahoma. Seventeen defendants were arrested Monday morning, most in Oklahoma County. The arrests were the result of a year-long undercover investigation. "Last summer, we identified a large group of individuals bringing significant quantities of Mexican-produced methamphetamine into central Oklahoma for distribution," he said. "These shipments would include as much as 10 pounds of meth each week. So this network was considered a major supplier of meth throughout central Oklahoma."
