Twenty people were arrested Friday in Seminole County in connection with a three-year investigation into methamphetamine distribution, agents with the state Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control reported.

The people were arrested in connection with distributing meth from Mexico in the county, agents said.

“This case began in 2011 from information gathered following the arrests of individuals selling crystal meth or ‘ice,'” Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics spokesman Mark Woodward said.

Woodward said it was common for the group to bring up to a pound of methamphetamine into Seminole County per week for distribution.

Law enforcement officers served 20 of 23 warrants issued in connection with the case and all those arrested were taken to Seminole County jail in Wewoka. Additional arrests are possible as the investigation continues, agents said.
