"We just feel very secure up here," Kutner said. "Law enforcement has a grip on things. They take care of business."

Chu said officers went door-to-door telling residents of the apartments about the roundup as arrests were being made. Several residents thanked officers for their work, she said.

She said law officers made a similar raid at the apartments in November 2008 because of complaints about drugs and gangs.

"We're cooperating with the police in trying to get this place cleaned up. I think it's a good thing," said Melissa Stark, assistant manager of Rolling Green Apartments.

People recently have complained about gunfire and drug deals at the apartments, Chu said.

"We're going to stay on top of it," Chu said. "This is an area that is right down the street from North High School. It's a very active area. People like to ride their bicycles and jog along this area so we want to make sure it is safe."

The operation included officers from the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, the FBI, Oklahoma Highway Patrol and Warr Acres police.
