      OBN agents suit up to arrest suspected meth dealers in Garvin County

      Agents with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics started their morning extra early and arrested several people accused of selling and distributing methamphetamine.

      Wednesday morning Agents searched Garvin County by foot and in the air arresting people they say are bringing meth into the community.

      "This investigation started back many many many years ago," said Darrel Weaver, director of OBN.

      Weaver said the drugs are being smuggled into Garvin county from Mexico. He said the suspects were distributing as much as two pounds of crystal meth a week that has a street value of anywhere from $20,000 to $25,000.

      "The arrests and activities that took place this morning really have a big impact on the western part of Garvin county," said Sheriff Larry Rhodes.

      Sheriff Rhodes helped in the sting. He said it's a relief to get the drugs off the street.

      "That is my goal to make this county a safe and I would like to think crime free county."

      Weaver said the arrests are a step in the right direction but OBNs work is far from over

      "We're not going away, we're not going to drift off into the sunset. We're going to be at ground zero and try to do something about the drug problems that plague this community."

      The roundup was labeled "Operation Pee Wee's Big Adventure" and lead to ten arrests Wednesday with more expected.
