The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation arrested five people Tuesday morning in Pocola and also seized 60 pounds of Meth.

The OSBI told KFSM, the CBS affiliate in Fort Smith, Arkansas, the arrests stemmed from an investigation into a drug and weapons smuggling ring in Arkansas, California, Oklahoma and Texas.

Agents arrested David Lemon, John Spencer, Jill Bradley, Che Tidwell and Tanner Thompson at a home on Highway 112 in LeFlore County.

"Drug investigations are not overnight, snap your finger types of things. Many result in year or years long investigations to reach the top of the food chain so to speak of drugs coming in," said LeFlore County Sheriff Rob Seale.

Tuesday's search was also part of a federal investigation.
