Charges upgraded after drug bust

Posted: Updated:

ALTUS, Okla._Two Altus residents arrested over a week ago for drug charges are now facing even steeper charges.

Maria Esquivel and Freddie Esquivel were just two of the many people arrested in an early morning drug raid earlier this month. The mother and son were charged with distribution of drugs and now are being charged with drug trafficking. The raid was part of a multi-agency effort to get drug dealers off the streets of Altus.

District Attorney John Wampler said they found a substantial amount of methamphetamine in their home on north Crain in Altus.
