Nearly 100 violent offenders are off Tulsa streets thanks to a huge sweep by local officers and federal agents.

Several different agencies – including the ATF and FBI - were involved in the multi-day operation targeting violent crime, illegal handguns and drugs.

The four-day city-wide sweep took weeks to prepare and was funded by the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office with grant money, costing more than $74,000.

More than 50 officers and agents worked together to serve 41 felony warrants and 127 misdemeanor warrants.

More than seven pounds of drugs were seized and 29 guns were pulled off the streets. In total, 92 people are now behind bars.

Tulsa Police Chief Chuck Jordan said, "Well, I hope it shows the public that we are proactive about it and we're not going to tolerate that in our city, and that this is going to be an ongoing initiative. We're gonna do it again, and again, and again, and that needs to be done in our city."

Jordan said the operation is just the first of several others that will take place to cut down on violent crime around the city.

Tulsa Police said during the operation the following activities were conducted:

  • 41 felony warrants served
  • 127 misdemeanor warrants served
  • 126 arrests for open felony charges
  • 45 arrests for open misdemeanor charges
  • 16 search warrants served
