10 Arrested In Bartlesville Drug Bust
BARTLESVILLE, Oklahoma - Bartlesville Police confiscated more than $90,000 of meth after serving a search warrant.
Officers said 10 people were arrested.
"Some of those people were from California. I believe they ended up making 10 arrests altogether. Some of those people had warrants," said Bartlesville Police Captain Jay Hastings.
When officers got to the house in the 3900 block of Northeast Michigan Tuesday evening, they were greeted with a handmade sign on the front door saying do not knock after 10 p.m.
The note is just one of many signs police say told them that people are in and out of this home all the time.
"There was five or six people inside the home. There were people outside of the home. There were a total of 13 people that were actually on the property," Hastings said. "A lot of them were saying, ‘I just came inside to use the bathroom.’"
Once police arrested everyone on the property, officers searched the home. They said they found two radios and more than two pounds of meth packaged for transport in a car.
Officers also said this isn't the first time a search warrant has been served there.
"There were also two radios where, like, the people in each vehicle were communicating back and forth as they traveled across the states to get here," Hastings said. "We don't know exactly where they were headed, if this was the destination or if they were gonna go on."
Police arrested Tiffany N. Britt, Jasmin M. Celio, Susan M. Flores, Florentino R. Alvarez Sr., Florentino R. Alvarez Jr., Chad M. Robinson, Christian M. Arias, Rebecca A. Conner, Victoria A. Carr and Tina J. Sanders.
Police said all 10 people were arrested for drug complaints.
They said there could be more arrests coming as they continue their investigation.
