Comments Off on Suspected Lawton methamphetamine pipeline dismantled, more than a dozen arrested

LAWTON, Oklahoma ā€” Authorities in Lawton say they’ve disrupted a major methamphetamine network and made more than a dozen arrests.

The raid took place before dawn on Friday and, by the time it was over, officers from several agencies had 13 people in custody.

Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics Director Darrell Weaver said large quantities of methamphetamine had been moving through the network.

Authorities raided a Lawton business, and Weaver said high-volume meth dealers will have a legitimate business that they use to launder money.

Comanche County Sheriff Kenny Stradley told Lawton television KSWO ( ) that area homicides, robberies and burglaries stem from meth addiction.

Officials didn’t describe any materials that were seized.
