Okla. agencies to get money from drug case

MUSKOGEE, Okla. - The U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Oklahoma is releasing nearly $670,000 in proceeds forfeited in a drug conspiracy case.

U.S. Attorney Sheldon Sperling announced Friday that the money would be distributed to eight state and local agencies involved in the investigation of a Pittsburg County-based drug-trafficking organization. Sperling says 13 people were charged in a conspiracy that involved large quantities of methamphetamine distribution.

He alleged the defendants engaged in financial transactions in criminally derived property to further their drug business. Four tracts of real property in Pittsburg County were sold.

Sperling says the McAlester Police Department would receive the largest amount - $220,937. The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs is to get $167,377 and the Drug Enforcement Administration's Asset Forfeiture Fund will get $133,901.
