EDMOND — The second sunrise drug bust in two days netted a number of arrests Thursday at an Edmond apartment complex.
A day after a roundup at a north Edmond complex, law officers hit Chapel Ridge Apartments in the 500 block of W 15th Street, police spokeswoman Glynda Chu said.
Thirteen people were taken into custody and 12 were booked Thursday at Edmond city jail, Chu said.
Bobby Barnes, 28, Bruce Carter, 20, Antryon Clark, 21, Celeste Fenton, 24, Robert Watkins, 19, Raven Summers, 18, and Drew Summers, 22, were all booked on complaints of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Patrick Limon, 24, Laya Muhammad, 35, and Andrew Roberts, 22, were arrested on warrants. Alfred Robinson, 33, and Robert Watkins, 19, were booked on complaints of possession of drug paraphernalia. Echele Thomas, 19, was arrested on a warrant and a complaint of possession of marijuana.
The arrests are part of an ongoing investigation into illegal drug activity at Edmond apartment complexes, Chu said
Wednesday, six people were arrested at Rolling Green Apartments, 400 E Danforth Road, where marijuana, steroids and guns were found.
"This morning was the same type of raid as the sweep we did yesterday," Chu said.
"It was basically due to the same complaints we'd had at both apartments about increased gang activity. We felt like action was needed."
Chu said a helicopter from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement was used to assist law officers on the ground.
She would not comment on the possibility of future raids.
"We have to keep these things quiet or they're not effective," she said.
