Police seized guns, stolen vehicles and an estimated $2 million in illegal drugs Thursday at four locations across Oklahoma City.
A traffic stop two weeks ago led police to an address in the 3200 block of SW 45 and ultimately to the arrest of nine people, police Capt. Dexter Nelson said. Nelson said a search warrant served early Thursday led investigators to several other locations across town.
“We're not saying the area of the traffic stop, but the traffic stop was approximately two weeks prior,” Nelson said. “It led officers to suspect that narcotics were being sold from that first residence, and it kind of dominoed from that point on — one led to another, which led to another, which led to another.”
Seized from the four residences were 13 firearms, a gallon of potent liquid methamphetamine, a pound of cocaine, 34 pounds of crystal methamphetamine, a half-pound of generic meth and several pharmaceutical pills, Nelson said.
Police also recovered $30,000 in cash and a stolen vehicle, he said.
