Comments Off on Federal agents seize 66 pounds of meth, $323,000 in cash from house in Oklahoma City

Federal agents seized more than 66 pounds of methamphetamine and $323,000 in cash from a “stash” house in northwest Oklahoma City where drugs and money were kept, court documents filed Wednesday show.

 Agents also seized a counterfeit $100 bill from the residence in the 9000 block of N Rockwell Drive and arrested a man suspected of trafficking methamphetamine, according to a search warrant affidavit filed in Oklahoma County District Court.

Alfredo Resendiz-Avila, 43, was in federal custody Wednesday, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office said.

Resendiz-Avila and three others listed in the document are thought to be involved in distributing methamphetamine throughout the Oklahoma City area from El Lagunero, a car wash at 2418 SW 59, according to the affidavit.

The nationwide operation is headed locally by a man named Iran Juan Zamarripa, whose organization “sells methamphetamine to numerous individuals, which may include gang members, who are selling the methamphetamine to other individuals,” an FBI special agent writes in the affidavit.

Resendiz-Avila and two others whose names are partially listed in the document assist Zamarripa, the agent reported. All four are in federal custody, according to the spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office.

An FBI spokesman declined to comment on the ongoing investigation by FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration agents and Oklahoma City police officers, which began in May.
