GARVIN COUNTY, Oklahoma -

The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and the Garvin County Sheriff's Department have ended a year-and-a-half long methamphetamine distribution investigation resulting in numerous search and arrest warrants.

OBN Spokesman Mark Woodward says agents and officers from several departments fanned out around 6 a.m. on Wednesday, armed with five search warrants and 23 arrest warrants for defendants accused of distributing Mexican-sourced meth.

"In May of 2012, OBN and the Garvin County Sheriff's Department began investigating a large meth distribution ring in Lindsay," OBN spokesman Mark Woodward said. "This group of defendants would import significant quantities of crystal methamphetamine or ‘ICE' into the Lindsay area to supply local dealers and users. Many of these defendants have lengthy and violent criminal histories."

Woodward says this organization would routinely distribute as much as 2 pounds of crystal meth weekly.

OBN Director Darrell Weaver says it is a vital for his agency to remove these criminal drug elements from communities.

As of noon Wednesday, 11 of the 23 suspects were in custody and transported to the Garvin County Jail. Additional arrests are possible as the investigation continues.
