Armed with arrest warrants, deputies, police, and Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics agents rounded up the suspects in Tipton, Grandfield, and Frederick. Those arrested were Sammy Johnson of Frederick. Jamine Simpson, Maria Garcia, Rex Rogers, and Victoria Cortez, all from Tipton. From Grandfield, they arrested Melissa Peterson, Andrew Steel, Ronald Bloggett, and George Rodriguez, Jr.
