Pair Of Homes In A South Lawton Neighborhood Raided

LAWTON, Okla._Comanche County Sheriff Deputies raided two suspected drug houses Thursday afternoon in the same southwest Lawton neighborhood, the first on Pennsylvania Ave and the second just a few blocks away on New York.

A father and son, who are both convicted felons, were arrested at one of the homes but the other suspect is still on the loose as of Friday night. After a detailed investigation, deputies decided Thursday was the day, making moves on the two suspected drug houses in Lawton.

"We have been working on these two people for quite a while and we knew they had a lot of activity there," said Sheriff Kenny Stradley.

And on Thursday they moved in; they went to 1301 Pennsylvania Ave and the suspect they were looking for was no where to be found, however they were able to recover some drugs.

"Crack cocaine, marijuana, enough for intent to distribute," said Sheriff Stradley.

Based on their investigation, Stradley believed they would find more. Later Thursday evening, deputies moved just four blocks away to the home at 1618 New York Ave and arrested a father and son duo, both with prior felony convictions.

The father, Johnny Fuller Sr. has been out of prison for 30 years. The son, Johnny Fuller Jr., was just released from jail last week on a counterfeit money charge.

"We found several guns and did find a little bit of marijuana," again, Stradley was expecting to find more.

Late last night, the father, who has cancer, was released from jail.

Neighbors, who only talked off camera for fear of retaliation, tell us they've seen a lot of people in and out of the home and are happy deputies took action. They're not surprise drugs are in their backyard and Stradley agrees.

"We have quite a bit of drugs here in this area and we all make an effort to take these people down and we are going to continue to do that," Stradley said.

The father who was released from jail is not off the hook, the district attorney is still determining his potential involvement in the situation.

The search still continues for the second alleged drug dealer.
