Two men were arrested in a Wagoner County drug bust Saturday in the Rocky Point area, according to a news release.

Deputies seized marijuana, over $12,000 in cash, two vehicles and household items after executing a search warrant at a home owned by John Matthew James.

James, 48, was booked on several complaints including drug possession, drug distribution, maintaining a residence where drugs are kept and sold and possession of controlled drugs within 1,000 feet of a park.

A Tulsa man, 49-year-old Michael Eugene Bumbalow, was also at the home during the search. He was arrested for possession of marijuana.

Sheriff Bob Colbert said in the last few minutes, his deputies have seized almost five pounds of marijuana, a kilo of cocaine, three grams of heroin, a half pound of ice and a gram of methamphetamine in the fast-growing county. They say they also seized close to $60,000 in the arrests.

"Seized drug proceeds can only be used for equipment and programs to further suppress drugs," Major Gary Handley said in a news release.

"Sheriff Colbert wants to interrupt the flow of product and proceeds between suppliers to reduce the availability of illegal drugs in our community."
