(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Federal prosecutors have filed drug charges against 23 people accused of trafficking powder cocaine, crack, methamphetamine and marijuana in Oklahoma City and Enid.

U-S District Attorney Robert McCampbell says all but one of the accused have been arrested.

Federal, state and local authorities arrested 22 people and conducted 18 search warrants. The investigation began two years ago and included wire taps on telephones.

One complaint accuses 13 people with conspiring to distribute more than five kilograms of powder cocaine and 100 pounds of marijuana.

Another complaint charges eight with conspiracy to distribute more than 500 grams of powder cocaine, 50 grams of crack cocaine and 200 pounds of marijuana.

A third complaint accuses two of conspiring to distribute two ounces of pure methamphetamine.

Julio C. Valle of Oklahoma City remains wanted by law officers.
