About Operation TrainWreck:

Federal agents, assisted by State and Local police investigators, conducted law enforcement operations on a Tahlequah neighborhood called "the hill" for several months.  During the course of the operation, agents purchased about 90 grams of methamphetamine, 7 grams of crack cocaine, 6 grams of cocaine, and 160 grams of marijuana.

In Tahlequah, four of the search warrants authorized agents to search residences of indicted defendants on "the hill," a neighborhood in the city. A fifth search warrant covered a residence in Keys, Oklahoma, and a sixth authorized the search of a residence in Fort Gibson, Oklahoma. The search warrants were served simultaneously at dawn.

The federal indictment alleges that beginning in approximately 2001, and continuing through November 17, 2009, the defendants agreed to violate the federal narcotics laws by possessing with intent to distribute and distributing controlled substances including marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine and crack cocaine.
