Stephens County District Attorney Jason Hicks noted that multiple law enforcement agencies worked together to bring these suspects to justice.

“I want to take a moment and personally thank the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, the Duncan Police Department, Marlow Police Department, Stephens County Sheriff’s Office and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol for their assistance in apprehending the individuals involved in the roundup,” said Hicks.

“The investigation was the second phase of a yearlong investigation and focused on the distribution and sale of methamphetamine in our community.  This phase resulted in charges being filed against 10 people.  To date, we have charged and arrested approximately 25 people in association with this investigation.  It has been ongoing for around a year and has been very successful.  We took multiple people into custody in August 2016, but our work was not done.  My Task Force, Office, and other law enforcement agencies take the sale of methamphetamine very seriously and will eventually catch up to those who decide to sell it in our communities.  I am proud of their work and am happy to say ‘It was a good day for the good guys.’”
