Dozens in Okla. and Texas arrested on meth, other drug charges
The Associated Press
OKLAHOMA CITY- A 10-month investigation into methamphetamine trafficking in Oklahoma and northern Texas led to the indictment of 103 people, federal authorities said Tuesday.
Among those arrested were the leaders of a group established in the region by the Chicago street gang Satan's Disciples, said U.S. Attorney Sheldon Sperling.
The investigation, dubbed Operation 700 Ranch Round-Up, began in May when authorities learned meth was being supplied in Oklahoma by traffickers in Texas.
Investigators seized more than 15 pounds of meth, along with crack, marijuana, about $161,000 and 49 weapons.
