TULSA, Oklahoma -- Several state and federal law enforcement agencies turned out to serve a search warrant at Tulsa's Club Imperio, 9379 E. 46th Street Friday night.

The scene was crowded with officers, police vehicles and even a bus in the case of multiple arrests.

"We brought enough man power to deal with anything that may arise," said Tulsa County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Tim Albin.

"The crowd has been extremely cooperative, and we've been able to identify some of the targets that we had in the warrant."

The sheriff's office says it was part of a high-profile investigation -- and is likely the first of many busts as deputies track down the people involved.

Five people were arrested, including the club security guard David Martin who officers say obstructed an officer.

As for the other four, the sheriff's office says they were aggregate felons. That means they've been deported at least once and are now back in the U.S. illegally.

Juan Huerta, Ramon Mora-Murillo, Raul Garcia-Dominguez and Jose Roblero-Perez are under an ICE hold.

Two of the suspects were arrested for drug possession. Officers seized a small quantity of cocaine, guns and an undisclosed amount of cash.

Tulsa County Sheriff's Office, Skiatook and Bixby Police Departments, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and The U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agencies were included in the multi-jurisdictional task force.
