CLAYTON, Okla. (AP) — State and local authorities have begun serving 43 arrest warrants related to a more than yearlong drug investigation in southeastern Oklahoma.
Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics spokesman Mark Woodward said 23 of the 43 persons being sought were in custody by late Friday morning after investigators began serving the warrants at 7 a.m.
Woodward says the investigation began in December 2013 into a drug ring suspected of selling methamphetamine and prescription drugs in and near the town of Clayton in Pushmataha County, about 170 miles southeast of Oklahoma City.
He says each suspect faces a variety of charges, including distribution of controlled substances.

Ezzard Charles Onebear was arrested at midday Tuesday, said District Attorney Larry Moore.
Another man had been charged in the case but was acquitted by a jury in early 2013.
