Last week’s indictment against 51 people outlines the alleged drug-ring activity of Donald Walters, 34, who had at least 40 underlings, including members of the Hoover Crips. Among the men indicted on drug charges was De’Mond Parker, a former University of Oklahoma football star who played in the NFL.

U.S. Attorney Danny Williams said what he deemed Tulsa’s “most violent and dangerous gang” brought an estimated $10 million worth of cocaine — more than 600 kilograms — and marijuana through the city over a three-year period.

Authorities allege the drugs came from cartels in Mexico and made their way through Dallas, Oklahoma City and Tulsa en route to Ohio and the northeastern United States. According to the indictment, the cocaine brought into Tulsa was processed into crack cocaine in 16 drug houses and sold out of several others, including homes in north, east and south Tulsa, Broken Arrow and Owasso.
