Three men, including two Mexican nationals, were arrested and charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute more than 3,300 pounds of marijuana, U.S. Attorney’s spokesman Bob Troester said. Manuel Barron-Hernandez, 40, Robert Olivas-Chavez, 31, and Juan Carlos Salinas, 19, a U.S. citizen, are accused of using a southwest Oklahoma City storage unit to store 3,319 pounds of marijuana in 42 large trash bins, Troester said.

‘Woofstock’ offers pets

People considering adopting a shelter pet are invited to check out the dogs and cats during the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter’s “rock star” adoption event. “Woofstock” is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the PetSmart at Interstate 40 and MacArthur. Adoption fees for kittens will be $30 and cats 6 months and older are free. Dogs and puppies also can be adopted for $30. The special pricing also is good at the shelter. All pets are sterilized, vaccinated and treated for fleas and ticks. The shelter is in the Rachel Ray 100K Challenge. “Our goal is to place more than 2,300 dogs and cats in caring homes between June 1 and Aug. 31,” interim animal welfare superintendent Jon Gary said. The shelter is open from noon to 5:45 p.m. daily except holidays at SE 29 and Bryant, 1.5 miles east of Interstate 35. View pets at www.okc.gov/animalwelfare/adoption.html.
