A warrants raid in north Tulsa Friday morning. Tulsa Police officers and federal agents served five drug warrants simultaneously Friday morning.

They recovered two pounds of cocaine with a street value of nearly $20,000, some counterfeit money, $3,000 in drug money and a gun that officers believe was used to commit a crime in another city. Officers are currently trying to seize a bank account that contains an additional several thousand dollars.

They arrested four people and targeted one man specifically. Tulsa Police Major Mark McCrory: "We were getting information about his dealing with gang members, that he was giving them cocaine to sell and we wanted to take his organization down."

Tulsa's Selective Enforcement Unit at TPD Uniform Division North conducted the raid with help from Tulsa's fugitive squad, DEA and ATF agents and US Marshals.
