The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control closed out a lengthy investigation with a series of arrests in Custer and Comanche counties Friday morning, a spokesman said.

About 100 agents and officers from several other agencies served arrest and search warrants about 6 a.m. Spokesman Mark Woodward said 40 arrest warrants were served in Weatherford and 13 in Lawton.

He said the arrests were part of a yearlong investigation into a drug ring that brought cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana from Mexico into Oklahoma City for distribution in Weatherford and Lawton.

Woodward said those arrested in the sweep will face a variety of charges. Woodward said 28 were booked into the Custer County jail.
