Three Arrested In Major Drug Bust In Rogers County
Tuesday, May 2nd 2006, 4:56 PM CDT
A drug task force has recovered one of the largest drug hauls the Rogers County Sheriffâ€™s Office has ever seen.
65 pounds of Mexican marijuana and $4,500 in cash were confiscated from a drug ring operating out of a Catoosa trailer park.
JosÃ© Ramos and Sergio Lopez are in jail. Trailer park owner Patricia Eslinger turned herself in.
Sheriff Jerry Prather says this drug bust will make a dent in east Tulsa, Catoosa, and Claremore drug deals, but it won't be enough to shut them down. "For a few weeks, it'll slow it down. They do probably; have other ways and other dealers in the area to make up for what we've got, but this will put a dent in it for a few weeks."
Detectives say on the street, that much marijuana could sell for more than $100,000.
