MARSHALL COUNTY, OK - Suspected drug dealers from all over Marshall County were arrested this morning in a sweep that law enforcement says, was months in the making.
Authorities say after 6 months of investigation and undercover operations six men were taken into custody this morning in Marshall County.
The sheriff's office teamed up with Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, along with the Madill Police Department to execute Thursday's warrant roundup.
Marhsall County Undersheriff Danny Cryer says the suspected drug dealers range from 18 to 66 years in age and are from all over the county. He says the suspects were distributing a wide variety of drugs, everything from marijuana to meth to prescription pills.
Cryer says an undercover agent bought drugs from several of the suspects during the course of the investigation, which started with tips from community members.
"When they report things that are abnormal, that's when we get to respond and really get in to find out what's going on and that's where most of these arrests come from, is tips from the community," says Cryer.
3 out of the 6 suspects were released on bond Thursday after being taken into custody. Cryer says all the arrests were for the felony charge of distribution of CDS.
