Another 22 people have been accused of involvement in a drug ring that used a south Oklahoma City car wash to distribute large amounts of methamphetamine.

The new defendants were charged Monday in Oklahoma City federal court with conspiracy to possess at least 85 pounds of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. Nineteen were arrested Thursday. Thirteen people were charged earlier.

Most of the new defendants were identified by an FBI agent as distributors for the organization.

One new defendant, Daniee Avila, was identified by the agent as a “brujo” — a witch doctor — who “conducted and performed the blessing of drug shipments for the organization.”

The FBI agent reported a confidential informant said another defendant, Pamela Davis, “use to work as a correctional officer at the Lawton prison and would regularly bring contraband, including drugs, into the facility.”

Davis was spotted at the car wash on June 15 and July 5, according to the agent's affidavit.
